Beautiful details at Dania Beach Vintage Motorcycle Show

1969 BSA A65 Clubman was shiniest motorcycle I saw at the show.
It was shown by Bob Benyo of North Miami, Fla.
For awhile I thought the only Royal Enfield at the Dania Beach Vintage Motorcycle Show today might be the Royal Enfield Bullet I rode there!

But never fear. Your determined Royal Enfield reporter finally tracked down a neglected looking 1946 Royal Enfield 250cc single motor and gearbox, for sale in the vendor area.

1946 Royal Enfield 250cc motor and gearbox; asking price was $350.
Not collector's items, you say? Maybe not but this odd looking little motor, with its oil filler hole in front of the motor, is the first I've actually seen with my own eyes.

For me, that's one of the great things about the Dania Beach Vintage Motorcycle Show — the amazing diversity of motorcycles on view and their curious features. Bear with me while I share a few.

1975 Norton Interstate looked aerodynamic and abounded in great details.
Shown by Imperial Moto of Miami, Fla.
Norton Interstate bags really stole the show.
Norton Interstate sported a flying Indian fender ornament.
Would it get you a parking space in Washington, D.C.?
Norton Interstate had all the right details.
1939 Velocette KSS used oddly shaped toolbox.
Shown by Paul Rodriguez of Punta Gorda, Fla.
Delicate lever. Surprised to see it on a beefy 1936 Harley-Davidson.
It's the front brake lever. Shown by Patrick Brosnan of New York City.
Headlamp hood with an accessory ruby to show lamp is on.
Another feature of Brosnan's 1936 Harley-Davidson.
Why aren't all kickstands as simple and light as the one
on this 1970 Elstar ice racer? More stable than the usual peg.
Customized 1955 Triumph Thunderbird with narrow sprung seat
allowing rider to get low by sliding back onto cafe-style seat.
Shown by Metalflake Jeb of Hobe Sound, Fla. 
2018 Dania Beach Vintage Motorcycle Show
