I'll go with the blueish (Doh!) 3C and then the Guzzi. I like the SF in the older pic as I can't get past the red forks on the later one..

Thanks for all the comments everyone. I welcome all observations and criticisms.

The SF will definitiely get black fork sliders ...... and perhaps go back to stocke exhaust (depends on how bad the rust is on the originals). Still wondering if I like the red tailpiece or stock black colour. I do have the original dual seat as well .....

The 3C is in need of paint ...... I will keep the stock colour but someone has tried to rerpaint part of the tank and they did a horrible job. Not sure if I can polish out crap paint or just repaint.

The Puch is heading off to work with me later this week. I have a summer job flying out of a remote part of British Columbia ...... but the guy I am working for is also a bike nut and has a fully equipped shop and a collection of about 25 bikes. I will be able to ride and fix as well as fly and fish.

Thanks! I would suffer the same conundrum with all of your bikes! Luckily we each have one that we really could never argue about ......
