|Judges at work evaluating the British motorcycles.|
Sadly, I spotted no Royal Enfields this year except the one I parked on.
"I can't believe this place. There are so many (great) old motorcycles."
"I've seen things here I didn't know existed."
"I didn't know Indian made these."
"Look at this stuff!"
"I never even knew they made a Hercules."
It's my favorite local show and, this year, there was so much to look at I'm going to go right to the photos of the crazy stuff I liked the best. And I do like crazy stuff the best.
|Tidy and tiny 1959 DKW Hummel.|
(Hummel is German for Bumblebee.)
|Note the cozy tire pump fitting. But what's the grab handle for?|
|Elegant grab handle on a Steib S350 sidecar attached to a BMW.|
|1949 DOT Motortruck entered by Guy Protano of Hollywood, Fla.|
(It had a speedometer on the tank and twin headlights.)
|Best mascot was greyhound on 1950s Express Radex 100N.|
|1950 Reidel R100 Emmi entered by Jack Wells of Lake City, Fla.|
Do you see what I don't see?
|The Reidel has a single front fork tube!|
|1948 James entered by Bud Miller looked fantastic.|
|James took the mixture seriously.|
|The Hercules Wankel shown by Fred Kolman of Ottawa, Canada.|
|Who would think to pick out Speedmaster in paint? Nice touch.|
|1962 Jawa shown by Tim Purvis of West Palm Beach.|
|Get closer. The Jawa gets help from a Sears lawnmower gas tank.|
|Ideal paperweight for a vintage motorcycle.|
|Absolutely unashamed, a modest Honda sports duct tape bodywork.|
|Something else that never occurred to me.|
