    Here's some photos from my misspent youth (back in the early '90s). They show my first motorcycle, a 1964 Royal Enfield Continental 250GT that I rebuilt from a pile of bits. I was slightly confused by the first as I was sure my bike had checkered tape around the forks (classy) but I realised that my self (on the left) and the other chap (who's name I can't remember) were trying each other's bikes. This was taken at a '69 Club Classic Section meeting in London. The others were at a Rock and Roll Weekender in Hemsby, Norfolk (England, not VA). I am not sure who the girl was but she seemed to like the 'bike......…
    I also had a BSA A10 but can't find any decent photographs of it.

    Great photos. Had a couple friends with Continental GTs, sporty little bikes.

    Here's a good short movie featuring a Norton cafe racer.

    I've had a couple of these Guzzi El Dorados. Quirky but really nice cruisers, simple and reliable. The 90 degree V twin is ultra smooth and they loaf down the highway. This was a nice one.

    Guess what - I just found a picture of my BSA in it's final form before I sold it :( . Taken in front of the Vulcan Bomber at East Fortune Aircraft Museum in Scotland.

    Blowby, I wanted to see what this photo looked like without anything
    in the background and no spots on the street. Hope you don't mind.

    Still sad about it but I just had too many vehicles at that time.

    Scott, I wanted my eyes to focus on the BSA and not shoot off to the
    two fellows at the left. Okay?

    Looks great. Had a V7 Sport too, gorgeous bike but Guzzis make better cruisers imo.

    When I saw this monstrosity under construction in 2015 I was told it was going
    to Jay Leno. I haven't been able to confirm that. I've seen nothing linking Leno
    with this trike. I was recently told that it's in California, though.
