How 'bout we round out the list with some dual headlight '80's sexiness?
I'll nominate canyoncarvers "The Fly"
http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=73144.0

In my (very humble) opinion, this is the spirit of the Café Racer. Buy a bike cheap... make it go fast... have a fuckload of fun on it!

When you are Dead, you don't know that you are Dead. It is difficult only for Others.

It is the same when you are Stupid.

Voting thread to come shortly!  I think everyone is on vacation.  I wish I had that problem keeping me busy :)
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Voting is open!  Sorry for the delay - nominees send me different photos for the poll if you want them changed.

First impulse was to vote for RR's beautiful Yamaha, but ended up with Trek's (the 'freshen up' man) Honda.

Voting doesn't get any easier with only two bikes!

VOTING RESET!

I neglected to add Canyoncarver's The Fly - added and reset.  Apologies!

I'm kinda fond of this one.  When I spotted it on CL, I drove 6 hours to see it but I had to pay to get it out of pawn shop first.  That was faith.  I got it home and over the winter,  did all the things including the valve clearances, and made it howl.  I do love this bike.
