    My wife was in love with the Chimera at the Barber museum. Aermacchi made some pretty little bikes, and I've always been impressed how well their Sprint 350's hang with the Hondas and Ducatis in the ARHMA CB350 races 20151009_133627.jpg

    From what I understand there are only 4 Mercury's left in existence. They utilized a Scott 600 engine with center hub steering and (by the looks) torsion bar forks . A pretty advanced bike for it's time.

    2001 MZ Baghira. I bought it thinking I could learn to wheelie. 2001 MZ right side.jpg It didn't help. :( I still think it's a good looking bike though.

    I bat that Hesketh makes some noise going down the road! I prefer something a little smaller and a little more docile these days.

    I wonder how many riders of those old machines got shocked by touching their legs to the spark plug connections? That would be kind of exciting!

    I like the mounting of the oil sight glass on the Wilkinson. The rider can see the oil flow and can instantly react when the oil is low or when the flow stops without ever taking their eyes off the road. Unlike most bikes of the time mounting their oil sight glass on the frame, below the rider.
