1 of 5 – Target Design MV Agusta 750S

Target Design was formed back in 1979 after 3 ex-BMW stylists (including the legendary Hans Muth) decided to split off and try things on their own. They almost immediately made a name by winning a competition from German magazine Motorrad about what motorcycles would look like in the future. Their winning design (called the ED-1, ED stood for European Design) was based on a MV Agusta:

Classic Japanese Collection

This could just as well be one of my “Picture Intermissions”, (so I’d recommend you click the link just to peruse) but there’s a seller on Craigslist who’s offering a boatload of classic Japanese bikes, mostly Hondas.

The paint scheme went on to become a Ducati classic – Ducati themselves even honored the lovely black and gold livery with the 2007 Sport 1000 Special Edition, a limited run of just 100 bikes only made for the US.

1979 Kawasaki “Z1100″

Curious to know what you guys and gals think about this custom Z1 restomod – it has less than 1,000 miles on an engine rebuild which includes a bump up to 1138cc, Ducati wheels/swingarm and that weird headlight found on Zeros and Brammos. Cool or poorly done?
