Serously I have been looking at old standards the last few weekends for my son to learn on. I'd like a nighthawk or GS from 400 to 550cc if I could find one in decent shape but they go fast or are not what they are advertized to be. One thing that became obvious is how crappy the brakes were back then especially the drum brakes which seemed non existant.
I see an old GPZ 550 is in the local paper this weekend and may sniff it, but from what I've read the the powers a little peaky for learning on..
I wouldn't ditch the GPZ1100  though..everytime I ride another bike I realize what a keeper it is..

Ok I'll bite what is an old standard?? I've owned anything from a 1965 Suzuki 80 Sport (only ever new bike) to a 1929 HD 61 CID with a side car, 42 WL 45 CID? HD, 47 HD 61 CID EL; 53 Zundapp 600 cc, 59 Matchless 650, and others.
