Thought I'd also show the Velocette Venom:
That's a pretty bike there Summer.
Still a daily rider.
Thanks to Chuck.
Almost done and still one of the best looking motors ever.
And the upcoming winter project, 1700 original miles.
And still a cult classic.
Hey, I have one of those:
My that is one pretty motorcycle and you are one lucky SOB. Congrats!
Gawd I love SR500s, it looks much better with spoke wheels but either way she's a beauty. I WILL own another some day.
I've always had a soft spot for thumpers, the Ducati bevel drive single is a work of art.
I think I'm going to like this forum.
My baby, now deceased awaiting resurrection.
I love posting my old Dual-Sport (1943 BSA M20WD)...
Yes please. Any R69S just lying around gathering dust....I can probably take off his hands
I ain't sure what it is, but certainly not a gambalunga.
I just picked up an '82 RD350 last week here in S. California. Can you PM me? I'd like to ask questions about yours.
How old do we go ? This is my grandfather on my dads (at the back of the photo) Matchy. Circa mid 50's. They both had bikes but mainly indians & matchless. There wasnt a lot around then. My dad still talks about serving with the yanks & them letting him & his mates borrow their army WLA's for a day out on a bike. They were just dirt farmers & to have a bike given to them to ride when the wanted was alright by them they reconed.
WOW, absolutely stunning. If it's yours and you ever want to sell, look me up.
1971 Moto Guzzi Ambassador, also has a sidecar. Rescued last year from cobwebs & neglect, covered with about an inch of windblown red Sedona, AZ dust. The original owner bough it new -- gift to himself for his 70th birthday. Rode it up & down a dirt road near his house, followed occasionally by his wife in their car, to "keep an eye on him." Don't know why she didn't ride in the sidecar.
Probably terrified of the contraption.
Ambassadors are looking cooler and cooler in my bok, the more I see them.
Chopp edit: I hit "edit" instead of "reply" I restored the original 00 message. My bad.
What I meant to say was....
Ambos and Eldos are mostly samey same as far as looks go. Eldo has the 5 speed and 100 more CC. The trick bit is to put an eldo crank and pistons in the ambo
What are you going to do to it? Doesn't look like it needs a resto . . .
