2014 Clematis Vintage Motorcycle Show photos

New Royal Enfields towered over this vintage motorcycle show.
It was no problem finding Royal Enfields on display at the Inaugural Iron & Clematis Vintage Motorcycle Festival Saturday in downtown West Palm Beach, Fla. They literally towered over the crowd jamming Clematis Street.

New Royal Enfield dealer Dream Machines, of Lantana, Fla., was hard to miss, with singles and a sidecar outfit on display.

Fantastic motorcycles but you had to know what to look for.
Unfortunately, other great motorcycles on display weren't as easy for me to identify. It didn't occur to me until later to ask organizers if there was a list of the entries I could have. Each motorcycle did have a small number tag, on the headlight, so crowd members could vote for a People's Choice winner.

Should have worn his helmet.
So, minus labels to tell me what I was looking at, I was left to fall back simply on what caught my eye — even the downright silly.

Sleek motorcycle fairing with nautical touch.
My hands-down favorite was the motorcycle rigged with the plastic body of a personal watercraft. I couldn't even tell what kind of motorcycle it was, but it doesn't matter.

It's the greatest idea for a full-body fairing I've ever seen.

Personal watercraft body looks natural.
Whizzer style motor bike with sidecar.
This cafe racer will do the half ton.
Lots to look at and lots of lookers.
