My bike’s corroded cases fool even pretty experienced motorcyclists into believing that it’s a genuine vintage machine. It’s actually new, but sadly it handles like a machine at least 50 years old! (I have a friend in France who has built a few fast modern Bonnies, and he’s warned me that the frame is made of, as he says, “saucisse” — sausage.) Making this thing handle will provide fodder for a few future Backmarker columns, I’m sure...
