My little Royal Enfield! :)



It's still a classic even if it was made in the 21st century, right?

You bet it is.
And an immortal one on top of that too.

The hot dogger was strong swimmer and saved Dad a month later when he was being drug out by a rip tide.


Love the old military bike...GREAT PIC

Just a note to all the old school aficionados: Big Sid Biberman passed away today. He was a legendary rider and tuner and Vincent lover. His son wrote a fine book about the hybrid he and his father built. Godspeed Big Sid!

My old Ironhead XLX Sportster turned 30 years old this year, so here are a few recent pictures of it. I know they're not generally thought of as classic bikes in the same way as old Triumphs, Hondas, BMWs, etc., but if you don't lump them into the modern "Harley" scene , they are pretty cool old machines.

I'm doing good. Working too much and not riding enough.

The CB750 chopper I just built, out for the shakedown run with my buddy on his rigid CB750.

I'd heard of Big Sid's Vincent Shop and on my first visit to the Virginia Beach area I made it a point to stop in.My wife and daughter went to the beach in the van and i unloaded my SR500 to look for Sid's.
And then came the rain, not just wettness, but running over my foot pegs flooding . The bow waves from the cars threatened to knock me over. it was so deep I couldn't tell where the roadsides were or see the curbs.Then it let up and I found the shop.
A very cool, old time bike shop and Big Sid himself, a man mountain , he looked 7' tall and carried a lot of weight as well. But, he was soft spoken and friendly and as well as the Vincents he was into Bevel drive Ducatis , so we had another thing in common.
Sid in normal conversation had a pronounced stutter, but , I overheard him on the phone to someone asking advice on setting up his carburators on a Vincent and Sid told him precisely what to do in great detail. And when he was talking to this fellow on the phone , the stutter completely disappeared, not a hint of it.
I bought a T-shirt from him and sad to say I wore it out and it's gone. But I'll always remember meeting big Sid, the Vincent Legend.

Cool story! His son Michael is a Professor at UL and Sid has been here for about ten years I believe working out of his garage. Several of the local Louisville Vintage group have worked for him and ridden in his Bonneville attempts. The family and the LVM group was down at the Monkey Wrench last night. That would have been a good one to tell. Lots of pics on the Louisville Vintage Motorworks facebook page.
