OLEY 2010!

Just got back from Oley and heres my review: Harley riders should've been happy as hog's in shit (sorry bad pun) but for those looking for European moto's, it was slim pickin's . I was able to spot a few Brit Bikes and a couple of random Continental machines on top of locating a few spares for my 71 A65t.

A couple of nice pre Unit Triumph, The rear being a Trophy (obviously based on the pedestrian slicer)

Another pre-unit Triumph, not sure the year.

Norton Hard Tail.

The sought after Vincent with another Norton in the background.

A rather rusty Benelli 250 - similar to the one my friend Justin and his girldfriend Nina just picked up last week at Chadds Ford. Turns out the guy who owned thi bike had a cache of Benelli parts for sale. I texted Justin who was STOKED.

Bultaco. Couldn't find the owner or a price. Oh well....

Super sweet BSA street tracker hard tail. DBD35 (Thanks for the info, Bodger!)

Stellar BSA road racer. Gorgeous! (Possibly a B44 or B25 according to Bodger over at BritBike.com)

Norton

This board tracker seems to be more fabricated than original but the attention to detail is remarkable. I love these bikes.

Extremely rare BSA Sun Beam scooter. Good luck finding parts for this, though it looks pretty complete. Honestly, I think the Italians did scooters better than anyone else, but British scooters certainly are an anomaly...

Mid 60's BSA Spitfire for raffle. I didn't bother because my luck sucks - hopefully whoever wins this actually appreciates the beauty of this motorcycle and doesn't simply flip it on ebay.
