1954 500cc Sunbeam with Steib sidecar
it was close quarters so this was the best I could do, 1950 Harley (showroom condition, too bad I couldn't download the sound after he cranked it up, a monster I tell you!)
Harley Sporster Hill Climber!
I do remember in the early days of the Sportster there was an optional high-pipe set.
You see a lot of exotic bikes and other innovations at hill climbs. IMO they are mostly fun to attend for that reason.
No comment on the hand-crank starter? <chuckle>
I was with several other riders one time at the restaurant on Mullholland Hwy. and Jay Leno rode into the parking lot on one of those. I thought a jet was landing.
Something more appropriate for this forum.
An early 1970s Jawa ISDT bike.
Threw me for a moment with the shot of the MX bike engine in there, but that sure is a sweet example of a rare and odd (even for Jawa/CZ) machine. Great find, and thanks for sharing.
It may be a hardtail, but I doubt it's a rigid frame. At least the valve adjustments look easy.
Assume this pic is from the CZ behind the Jawa, which is a very interesting machine, quirky frame, not too comfy footpegs etc.....
Yes you are correct. That is the CZ. Should not post while at work.
The whole point of those Jawas was to win their classses in the ISDT. Everything was designed around that. Sealed chain cover to reduce maintenance, forward facing kickstart to quickly restart after a stall no rim locks to speed tyre changes and of course the bottle of compressed air to speed tube refills after a puncture repair, Barum 6 ply tyres only 4 screws to remove the clutch cover and, not that I am for a moment suggesting there was any cheating going on, a frame that allowed for super easy engine swaps in the bush should somebody who was so inclined want to do one.
Who remembers the Rokon automatic from the early 1970s? (Not the two wheel drive one that is still available)
What about a Enfield Robin?
When I was over in England I saw one at the national museum before it burned down.
