Let's Ride: Mt. Tam Easter Sunrise

A couple of riders on the Easter Morning Sunrise Rally on Mount Tamalpias in Marin County ... here's the sunrise, it was a nice day ...



And the Nortons:






This one belongs to Lorin ...

We get up at 3:30am and eventually join about 200 fellow motorcyclists on the east peak of Mt. Tam and watch the sunrise from a perch under the watch-tower ...

I rode my 1973 Triumph Tiger, which still looks the same, so I'll spare you another photo ... ha.

See you in the parking lot,
-- SFMCjohn

That looks like hard work on a big twin!

Bought It,

[IMG]

OK, Now I own a Real Classic. Hope to get started on it this spring. I have a complete restored front end for it and a bunch of other bits. I need to complete my Cafe Rat GPZ550 before I start on this.
Thanks for the comments

I have never owned a britt bike but have rebuilt a couple of old beemers so feel I could take on a rebuild of one of these.
Thanks for any input.
Steve

Steve you have your work cut out for you.
When I get up to pacos for a vintage thingy this year I'll let you know, maybe I can help. I do have many web addresses to source parts. Shoot PM if that's something you need. #1 site to talk about it is;
http://www.b50.org/
Even though it's all about the oif's, there's lots of pre 71 stuff there.
http://members.boardhost.com/whitey/ ...here, have some more discussion...

extra fork set...rebuilt? OEM or like what is already on there.
Realistic price for your bike fixed up might be 3,200. I'd have to think it's a labor of love as opposed to turning around and being a money maker.

My bike has had about 10,000 thrown at it, but that's in 35 years. All the fun riding...that's economical.

This Friday (4/27) I'm riding the Norton over to Oley PA for the Perkiomen Chapter of the AMCA's Spring ANtique Meet.
Pix WILL be posted. Lots of Harley and Indian stuff at these meets but inevitably, lots of Brit Iron as well. Often, VERY interesting bikes in the parking lot!

New Project on it's way.

Got a mate who's always stumbling across bikes in strange places. This ones in Greece apparently and has my name on it if it makes it back. Just needs a little TLC and a bucket load of throwing at it

I hope you get it OK Rob. it is in a tiny bit worse shape than the one I had for a few months before the pressures of being newly married made me decide to sell it years ago. I look longingly at every fastback I see ever since. be sure you use a high quality tank sealer to protect that fibreglass from todays fuel. good luck with the project. JB

Star of Oley

a rare Triumph race bike:











ONLY 25K!

The guy, when asked where he got the thing:

"I bought it from some ex-racer guy in Argentina- I didn't want it but had to buy it in order to get this BMW I wanted- it was a package deal! I'm really NOT into Triumphs so now I'm just trying to sell it and maybe break even."

Before coming across this, my fave-o-the-day was that BSA Empire Star- and I'm not a "BSA Guy".
