Ha! I wouldn't call any but the BMW and Injun vintage. The others, classic maybe . The desmosideci doesn't even tick that box for me. My list would include:
Scott Flying Squirrel
Ducati 750 Sport (the bevel one)
Ducati Pantah
Ducati 450 Shotgun
RE Continental GT 250
Bridgestone 350 GTR

simon from south Australia
Continental GT
Suzuki Savage bobber
Pantah
Monster
DR250

Since i am not forbidden i think they did OK. The Ducati and the Suzuki seem out of place though. Oh look, RE Bullet.

They did okay.
It's an opinion article.
I would have had many different selections, myself.

I love the Triumph, used to have one almost like it, different color, Seafoam green and white. BMW is to old, I loved the toaster tank Earles fork models of the '60s. I also love that Commando. That is one ugly Sportster. Looks like the back end of a scooter. And the RG500, VFR, and the Duc just don't belong here.

Google "Panther 120" for a cool looking bike. I have always wanted one of those in solo form.

Like Vincents, they languished at the back of 1960s motor cycle shops (as unwanted old-man sidecar bikes) when the Japanese companies blew the industry to hell.
