Ritmo Sereno's stunning new BMW R100rs

Ritmo continues to produce incredible Beemers, and reminds me a bit of the Swiss builer Elgi in his 80's modernist phase. Wonderful.

I haven't been able to find anything about this bike, but love the detail & 'balance' of this retro enduro BMW. That tank is something else.......... Anyone know of this bike ?

Honda CB77 Superhawk

The CB77 (and CL77, CB72) was groundbreaking in it's day for weight, power and reliability. Their true popularity these days lies in the 'that was my first bike' factor, as collectors re-live their younger days (SL70 for me...). There are plenty of vintage racers out there on these little wasps as well ! (see earlier posts on Vicious Cycles)

Smallsun Royal Enfield - Online store coming soon !

After years of research & restoration I've finally landed my first Enfield shipment. These bikes are completely restored, new Alloy 500cc heads, 4 or 5 speed gearbox and options galore. Prices are very reasonable (thanks to the strong AUD$), and the website should be up and running next week. Here are a few pics from the first photo shoot:

Please let me know what you think ! Planning a rigid frame model for the next shipment...
