    Our local antique motorcycle club had a garage tour today. Only a few antiques showed up for the ride.
    The first stop was Chance mfg. They are a premire builder of carnival rides and buses.
    What? you may say does carnival rides have to do with shiny antiques? Hell if I know other than the owner is a club member so just shut up and enjoy the ride. We'll get to the shiny stuff in a minute.

    Parking lot photos.
    I rode the Guzz.

    Back in the shop we see some ducks. Actually replicas of WWII ducks.These are for a tour company out of Boston. They no longer can find parts for the originals.

    A new ride that they are developing. You can stop the rotation of the chairs with a handle between the riders.

    Our next stop was a shocker. I spent the whole time with my mouth open.

    I think that "Antique Motorcycle Club" needs a memo- "Ride your old bikes-not your new ones":huh

    If they are over seventy years of age we give'm a pass on the modern machinery. Also a lot of "friends" showed up for the tour.

    Thanks Baldy. The lighting left a lot to be desired.

    Random shots.
