As usual, I met a bunch of nice people and had plenty of great cycle-talk. Saw some beautiful bikes, picked up a couple of odds and ends for my Bonneville.... blah blah blah - enough talk, here's the pics:
|Beautiful Triumph Tiger Cub, one of many that graced the concourse.|
|Mid 60's Bonneville with interesting mid level TT "silencers"|
and luggage rack combo.
|Tr6, looks pretty original. Nice!|
|Tiger Cub in a Rickman frame.|
|1964 Tiger Cub 250 Trials bike. Gorgeous!|
|Look at that tank! I almost had one from ebay, but was sniped|
3 seconds before it ended.
|Another superb example of a Tiger Cub.|
|Bonneville engine in Benelli frame and trim.|
|1950 BSA Goldstar. This bike was raced back in the day as well|
as in Ahrma. Took some titles, but now it's for sale.
|Unique modern "cafe racer" Yamaha|
|Note the shock mounted in front...|
|No mono shock there, that front shock attaches under the bikes chasis.|
|I'm not sure if Coca Cola ever used motorcycles to distribute their soda.|
But the attention to detail is very admirable .
|Harley Aermacchi short tracker.|
|1963 DMW Trials bike. Check out there site!|
|Check out the front end, very similar to older BMWs|
Tiger cubs were the dominate force of this years mid-winter meet. Lately, I've been dreaming about building a Cub race bike capable of breaking the ton... Speaking of which, I have a great surprise for anyone into Tiger Cubs, Triumphs or just race bikes in general. Parts Monkeys and Tech Junkies get ready for the next Smoke and Throttle entry coming this week!
