Yup this has been my old favorite, 61 or 62 Hornet, for about 20 years now. And whenever I built my first sting ray mid 60's, black was my color of choice. There was something powerful about em in the late 50's early sixties which was the bad boys color of choice along with high rise handle bars. I even had two, 1 with chrome rims and with white but preferred the white and dumped the other. Prefer it to my two black phantoms and 55 deluxe green hornet too. It's a power bike that somehow says 'I'm mean' or Don't FWM.
