Hi guys

I was asked this question tonight in a feed! The actual question was "whats the attraction to retro bikes? is it like vinyl vs digital music?" I'm interested to find out what everybody thinks!

The feed it was on was viewtopic.php?f=2&t=266894&p=1999913#p1999913

Looking forward to seeing the responses!

Dave
