    My buddy has a pristine '59 R69/S with some rare aftermarket items.Low mileage.Beatiful bike.Those /2 bikes with the Earles fork sure make nice sidecar rigs.

    This is a beautiful machine. It says it is a concept but they should build it. Take riding back to what is should be. No stereo, no cruise control, no huge windscreen. Just bugs in your teeth joy.

    I really like a helmet with a full shield. I don't need the pain from hitting a large bug or any size bird to prove my manhood.

    My 1951 R51/3 500cc that I've had since the mid 70s and still ride. The pic was taken before I fitted euro bars and pillion pad. Not for the purists it was a combination of mismatch bits, including the obvious Brit silencers, when I acquired it.
    Since my hearing has degenerated I need a full face skull bucket just to tolerate the wind roar.

    Right. When I was 13 or 14 riding my Whizzer I had a bee fly into my mouth. That was no fun.

    The Ellembee special, built in 1935 by Leslie M. Ballamy to demonstrate his IFS. Said to be built on a 1928 A7 Chummy chassis, it was destroyed in 1936 when on loan. Does anyone know what those wheels are from? Ford Y? Morris?

    1933 Raleigh Rickshaw. No one looks particularly happy to be there...

    If you recall the movie, there is a scene where two women are seated in the back and Hulot attempts to repair a flat by jacking the rear of the car. The result is only to jack up the women's seat. Thus, the rear was modified to allow the special effect.

    Yes, but I suspect there were other mods as well.
