BSA -Beautiful Steel & Alloy, or Bobber Scrambler & Art

This is the future of the past for now

Just when I'm losing it, one of my favourite blogs comes up with a retro Norton Cafe Racer he artfully photoshopped, and trumped the Neo-Vintage style wonderfully ! This is the (past) future....

tw225 - why do we ride bikes ?

To be individual
to have fun

and try to look cool (sometimes).
I wish we had TW's in Australia -

Royal Enfield Super Bullet 500 Scrambler

This work of art is from a Netherlands Museum I think - you can see more high quality photographs of vintage racing bikes (and dramatic Nordic landscapes) at Hans Viveen's Flikr site:

1929 Douglas 500cc Dirtbike !!

Australian motor racing celebrity & car dealer Reg Hunt purchased the 500cc ‘Cinders’ dirt track bike on the understanding that it had once belonged to the American showman & racer Sprouts Elders, distinctive by its silver frame a Signature of Sprouts’ bikes. It is highly original and in its dirt track form. Sold recently at Sothebys. Would love to tear up the local golf course on this baby.
