1973 Moto-Guzzi V-7 Sport

The 1970's offered some of the coolest bikes ever built.  You had your choice of the V-7 Sport, the Ducati 750SS, the Norton Commando and Harley Davidson's XLCR .  This is not to mention the immortal Kawasaki 900, which at the time was a monster in a straight line contest.

Why don't motorcycles exude the same degree of coolness today ?  Was it perhaps a time when every manufacturer was striving to be the best and coolest and now they just crank out plastic machines. 

There is a Moto-Guzzi V-7 Sport on E Bay right now if there is any interest, not as cool as this one but pretty nice.
