The “Vintage” Edition XS


A 79′ Special with several cosmetic and functional updates for better performance and reliability. A hoot to ride – a salute to the Brits earlier styling.

    After 50 years of riding AJS;Matchless:Enfield;BSA; Norton; Benelli; and even a Six speed side valve Bridgestone GTS 350 – this bike does it all for me.

    Comfortable,Clean,fast enough, and reliable and Safe transportation – that’s what it is all about – this one put the “Pommy” bikes back on their trailers…….

    I pushed a button to get it started (within 2 Seconds) – rode 26 miles for a great Deli Sandwich, and then back home without incident on a great Fall Day here in Southeastern Missouri. Pure Bliss.

    If this had been my Norton GT replica (Senior Ace bars;Single saddle: fiberglass tank and fenders; rear sets and itty bitty muffs – basically a Unicycle with a training wheel in front……..I’d probably still be out searching the path I took to pick up the bits and expensive pieces that vibrated off while en route so I could re-install them ……… again

    Instead, when I arrived home – 52 miles later – I topped off the oil, checked the chain for lube, gave it a light rub to remove a few drops that squeezed out in the past 52 freeway miles, and turned out the lights – ready for the next ride.
