    Today was the first Kempton of the new year, and although we have had some pretty poor weather of late, with many areas still under snow, some hardy souls did venture out...

    I did think about buying the little white Honda, but someone else jumped in while I was deliberating?:evil I did buy something though, a New Old Stock, unused 1970's open face helmet in cool 70's design:clap:freaky:clap

    I bought a couple of small things, some period indicators for the Guzzi, and a NOS unused 1970's open face lid, very cool in an "on any Sunday" kind of way! :clap

    It's timeless!! Know what they were asking? I would have sold my (wife's:lol3) car to take it home and then hid it until the divorce was final.
