Inspection in friends garages are always pleasant. Have a look at these interesting bikes:
Ardie, Ariel, Honda and Vincent. Placed in alphabetic order! Coincidence? I don`t think so.....
He had a lot of four valve Rudge heads. I thought thees things where hard to find. He have probably found the mother load....
Big Smiths instruments on the Vincent. Why? I personally think it has something to do with age and eye sight on the average Vincent owner. Gray hair and thick glasses.
Always when I see a Vincent i hear the Richard Thompson song "1952 Vincent Black Lightning" in my head:
"Says James, in my opinion, there`s nothing in this world,
beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl
Now Norton's and Indians and Greevses won`t do
They don`t have a soul like a Vincent 52"
Well, I already have the red headed girl......
Ariel are never wrong.
This is interesting! Ardie with Rudge four valve engine. Only a few of these machines where made. Looking forward to see the progress.
JAP engines, you can`t get nought of them. A man without a project are a man without a future....
NSU in unrestored condition. I can see that it have marked it`s territory.
