This is a very rare Honda GB 500 Tourist Trophy. It's closely related to a bike I own (a Honda FT 500 Ascot)

I think that's a Triumph 250.
They made several street and trail versions of it in the 70s.

Took this photo in the pits at the SCCA runoffs at Road America a few weeks ago. Not sure what model it is.

The red treatment, black exhaust and mild mods is kind of neat.

It looks like a basic 750 Bonneville to me.
