Rex

Was the ideal adventure bike created over 80 years ago?

750cc V Twin engine - check


State of the art lighting - check


Luggage rack & panniers - check


Then you need the 1929 Rex Acme.

Looks a lot like the great Sammy Miller's museum.I always make a point of going there whenever I'm back in England.I even got to have a little chat with him last time I was there,made my day.

In those days riding was an adventure, I look at the photos my old man left and the roads were absolute shit and shops we not what we expect. You needed to be a mechanic just to ride 'cause they needed attention regularly. Not that they were junk,it's just how it was.

Nice bike BTW.
