A Private Collection.

Last month I was visiting my Dearest in Germany. (Also a committed Motorcyclist). She asked if I'd be interested in visiting a private collection of Motorcycles, of which she had sent a couple of photos last year. It would take a little organizing, but should be OK. No guessing what I said...
So off we go to 'Joes' place...
He'd just come home on one of his daily riders.





But it turns out he has a neighbour, 'Tom'. These guys have grown up together as schoolmates, riding buddies, everything! And still live just a hundred metres apart, and both share the bike thing..
So let's go see what Toms up to...







Restoring one of these!










So. Tom asks if we'd like to have a look in his shed?








Anyone interested?
