Vintage Metal
Here in the Land of Nog, Mrs Noggin holds down a job (to feed my bike habit) at a small industrial museum.

Most weekends they hold special events for esoteric collectors, however, once a year they hold a Vintage Bike day - and this year I was there too with my camera.

Just a few of the bikes on show:

Worth mentioning that 99% of these bikes were riden there and then riden home again - no trailers today!

Just a great shame that so many similar machines were recently destroyed by fire at the UK National Motorcycle museum, but the spirit lives on.

Wow. Thanks, Noggin.

Oh, thanks alot Noggin.
Like I didn't already have the Jones' bad for a Vincent. What a beaut ! The problem on this end is to decide if giving up Mrs. Law Dawg for the Vincent is doable. Very tempting! However she would bankrupt me and take our kids and.....still, a VINCENT ! I got it bad!

Really thanks, what a fine collection.

Hey Noggin, I'll save you some typing:

NO, you idiot, it's a Heinkel Tourist. What kind of skooter geek are you?
