Streamlined or Conventional ???

CYCLE magazine ad from 1960. If I want streamlined, I'll get an AVON fairing, not a bathtub. But It kinda sounds like the main purpose was to keep your trousers clean. No use to me since I like wearing greasy clothes, and damn they're ugly...


  1. Who the hell wants clean trousers!

  2. Oddly enough I just saw a complete original unrestored bathtub in John Hately's garage. There were race bikes everywhere and that one little bathtub in the corner. Must be the only survivor that didn't get that awful fairing shitcanned within five minutes of purchase! Even had the pedestrian slicer.

  3. That's money in the bank due to their rarity now.
