The earlier racer
Last bit of fettling done, registered and on the road.
A couple of Metal Malarky Machines
They're behind a load of nice machinery
That is one sweet ride! Long may she run.
nice work dude, you should be proud.
Nice pics rob....takes me back to the early '70's...can't believe how fast these bikes were for for stoneage twins!!!!
Can't claim too much for it as it had a complete ground-up restoration 20 years back. It's done about 10,000 miles since but was kept in pretty good nick. The engine has just been totally rebuilt and the rest needed a general going over, carb work and various bits replaced plus a fair bit of good old cut and polish, but it has come up nicely. Still trying to replace a couple of small perished rubber bits to finish it off. Runs nicely though and I bought it as a daily rider rather than a Sunday bike.
Brough back at Bonneville 24th of August.... http://vimeo.com/63846936
Here are a couple pix from this year's 50th annual BSA International Rally, which was held in Norway.
The famed Guinness Bottle from BritBike.com was traveled around with the rally crew.
In Norway there is ALWAYS a ferry ride.
Stay tuned for more pix, will post as I get them uploaded
Looks like a great trip. Thanks for posting.
With the Union flag upside down. Again!!
I'll start flying the American flag upside down and see how folks feel about it?
Here are a few pics from yesterday's Brit Jam in CT:
Can't blame ya for being a bit peeved here dude. Seems as if folks are going to fly a flag in tribute, or for any other reason, they'd get it right! You're perfectly right in calling these bozos out.
It was a complete gas. The Norwegian BSAOC went all out, and hosted a wonderful rally.
I actually was kind of all over the place, from Hamburg Germany to Valldall Norway with stops along the way in Sweden. Read all about it if you like, as I post my story of the entire trip on BritBike.com, or wait for a BSA- only RR on ADVrider, in the RR section, later on.
AND: if you are on Instagram search ricochetrider to view some pix from the trip, and I also have some up on my Tumblr page.
In defence of those who inadvertently fly the Union flag upside down I sometimes have a hard time deciding which way is top or bottom myself and I'm a Brit.I know its broad white on top closest to the staff but I can see how an honest mistake can be made.
Flying any flag inverted is an international sign of distress so maybe.......
I know it's not obvious and I can see how most folks make the mistake but In an advert for Brough Superior!! Theres no excuse for that.
I'm going down to my local Brough Superior dealer to complain!
Look good though?
