Default Am I a traitor ?

I have a real passion for late 80's early 90's bikes. Ones I used to see whizzing by whilst I was on my mopeds trying to achieve 30 mph in a head wind.
Any found this thing a while back, nearly ready to rock and roll.
If this pic is upside down when I have posted it, it wasn't by choice, as the preview of this post put pic upside down...

Couldn't resist it, spent a fair bit of time on it like the heating system to all 4 carbs, a very clever set up, then the coolant pipes needed replacing along with o rings, wheel bearings, tyres, swing arm bearings, it's even got a pump up rear shock use with a bicycle pump.looking forward to riding it.

That's a nice bike! Definitely not a traitor - I think it's similar to people who like old cars. At a certain age they're all great and vintage wonders.
