vintage rally

There was a local vintage motorcycle rally this Saturday. I went over on a modern bike to have a coffe and talk to the lads before the start

Stein`s eastern marvel, a MZ TS 250 `76 getting a god kicking.
Only 12 bikes showed up. A 1963 Norton Dominator in front.
Where are the nice girls?
A fine Matchless G12CS, 1960.
Per`s getting ready to go on the mighty HD 1923.
Smells like a police bike? But you can go all day with that tank.
1954 Royal Enfield and a Zündapp KS 600 1941.

Triumph Thunderbird Party

Some time ago i got an assignment to find a "cool" bike for my friend Kjetil`s 40 years birthday. Usually we just bring some wine ore booze to a birthday party, so this is gone create a lot of problems for everybody else. But when the girl friend wants to bye the man in the house a bike, you just have to do what she wants. Where do you find a girl friend like that? Usually they want you to sell the bike and get a nice family car. This is the bike i ended up with: Triumph 6T 1952 in nice working condition.
A Hunt magneto is king of cool!
This was a surprise party so we had to hide the bike on a trailer.
Ready to go!
Some of the boys got a ride with the trailer.He did not know what was happening. Was waiting for some friends to help him with the house,

I think a side car is next step!

Tångarallyt 2008

Trond`s 1962 Jawa 250 are making their way in the fields.

Nice and shiny before the start.
Sound`s good on straight pipes.
Dag is standing on the Ariel. Probably looking out for badgers hiding in the grass.


Jan Roar on he`s newly assembeld 1973 Honda XL 350. He looks ready to handle 110 km of path`s, grit roads and streams.
Still got the speed, but had some poblems with the engine sizing after a rebore and new piston. It ain`t fun if it don`t cost you some.
Looking serius!
Here we have "all rounder" Tom on he`s 1970 Ducati 450. After some point adjusting in the woods, he gained some serios speed.
Here we are gatherd for some pep talk around Torstein`s 1974 Yamaha DT360
