    The Brough slideshows worth a look as well. I'm working in Woolaton next week. That's a lunch break taken care of..

    Love those JAP engines - 1934 Engine

    A lovely example. In particular the elegant curb of the exhaust. So sad the new 'vintage' ones miss out on this essential element. Just a curb perhaps, but what an expression it entails.


    Quite an impressive 'shed' too. :clap

    I love this bike. I had a '69 TR6R many many years ago and stupidly sold it.

    Trailblazer 250??? '71/'72? I remember these being launched and every 'bike magazine slated them but I always felt it was a brave styling attempt years ahead of it's time. This one looks so original and just so cooooooool! How does it ride?
    Lucky man!
