I agree.
I count myself lucky enough to currently own BSA preunits and units with 1 - 3 cylinders from 250 to 750 and even a Vincent black shadow  *yeah*, but if push came to shove and I had to sell everything, I still would never sell my '51 ZB33  *respect*, I can see why I might keep my c11, but would rather have the B, its very easy to start albeit the stands are rubbish. A std vincent has 4 stands and they are all rubbish too *shh*

If the time ever comes it will be hard to sell my two road rockets  *dribble* .
