I wonder if these guys were having fun?
I'd love to rummage through this lot, some very cool helmets in there I'm sure.
What a groovy bunch of hipsters eh? Weren't we so funny back then. The dude in the blue tank top looks like he's playing with himself
But then so do Yamaha and ROC for that matter
Lovely little Honda, see when you get it right it's right, even with a Ducati paint job it's still right
This Ducati is also quite beautiful too
Nice rear end.
Goodwood festival of Speed 2014 Mercedes sculpture, stunning
A very nice little banana bike
Oh yes, now doesn't this look great a GS750 made to look old
Now there's an awful lot of fish there wanting to eat those little men. Lets say that one of those divers is 6 feet tall, now line him up against the side of this fish, that's pretty fricken big. What 12- 14 feet long!!!!
This actually made me hungry
Is this a nice walk of shame or what?
This man still has 'those' eyes. bring your race face or piss off.
I do like these jelly bean tanked Ducatis
This image caused quite a stir at the turn of the fifties, it was showing the rebellious youth of America playing chicken and caused quite a few law changes in order to try and stop civil disobedience, and a poor attempt to rein in the youth of today. Worked well didn't it?
Gravel traps in slow motion produce some pretty cool images
Almost looks like an oil painting, love images that show speed
No self respecting rider should ever be without a Lewis leather 'brando ' style jacket. Just the business.
Gaston Rahier a living motorcycle racing legend. saw this guy at Victoria park Paraparaumu one year, he was quite simply epic
I think that this is a Mammoth Munch.
Hmmm he's doing about 10 amps an hour
Now when a builder gets it right, it's a natural, you can see that it is good.
Check out the cleanliness of the bike, the line, the color it all works well in harmony, a mix of old, older and new all to make a nice little motorcycle.
In the days when they raced 50cc bikes at a brazzillion revs.
I think that this is at the factory for the WDW event.
A mustang concept that never got built, than god.
OK, here are some bikes that in my humble opinion should never have been allowed off of the bench, this one above seat and tank don't match, exhaust is wrong for the bike, it ruins the line the infill under the seat is wrong it looks like an after thought, the rims are the wrong color and the chrome guards just do not work. Then there is the color, it takes a while to get a color right, it can destroy a bike or it can make it, be careful.
I mean look at this bike, it does not know what it wants to be?, it looks like it's about to bend in the middle, be a Ducati with it's paint, be a cafe racer with it's seat, it's too short in the rear and too big in the seat. It doers not work for me.
And I'm not biased, even this Guzzi is an ugly duckling I mean why would you? Guzzi's have always been noted for not being the prettiest girl at the dance, (but they were always the one you wanted to ride). Sometimes it seems that the builders just don't have an understanding for the basic bike aesthetic. Form and function.
And another, it has some nice detailing but it just does not work right, it's balance is all out and nothing flows together
Then you have guys that just know what seems right
And here's the ending you've all been waiting for, sick puppies
See you next week.
