Garage visit.

Last night I went to have a look at Gunnar "Speedy Gonzales" progress in the garage. Always interesting to have a close look there, he might have stuff I need.....He was also serving cake and drinks.....perfect!

The Il Duce of motorcycling: Gunnars portrait behind the Velocette Truxton
Just some minor adjustments left?

A nice tail!........Fish tail that is!

The Power egg lurking in a corner.

The secret GP drawer. Every home should have one.

 HD 750, guarded by the house ghost.


This is a must have: A drill powered by a British Thomson-Houston motor. The famous magneto company. In short : BTH.

A rare bird.

It`s the first warm and sunny Sunday of spring, that`s probably why I am inside carpentering a new roof in the living room. It`s all about timing........The good thing is that I can see and hear all the bikes passing my house. For the record: the roof is not my idea. Suddenly I hear the sound of a single. It stops at my house. I can sense a welcomed brake in the roofing.
 This is not a common bike. An Ardie from 1931. I think the model is called Silberpfeil. Made in Germany by Ardie Werk Nürnberg. English made JAP 500cc engine and Burman gerbox. Aluminum frame and a lot of chrome make the bike very shiny.This is a well restored and sorted bike.

I found out that Ardie also made a hot dog machine......That`s probably why Hans where heading to a snack bar. I think i know the order: "Eine grose bratwürst bitte".
