I am a middle-aged anthropologist at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. 
I have been riding for 35 years and have owned this 1967 Venom for 26 years. 
I stored the bike for most of that time, putting it back on the road in 2002. Aside from a tendency to eat fiber gears the machine is very reliable. 
I did a 900 mile tour during summer 2003 and also rode to some of the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group (CVMG) rallies. 
I learned, after I bought my Venom, that the Canadian dealer who sold it had ordered his machines with the tank and seat you see here. 
I like the look very much but could do with a larger fuel capacity since my range is only about 100 miles before I start looking for the one and only brand of high-test she likes!
