Skåne rundt 2011

Here is some photos from” Skåne rundt “2011. I had some problems with my camera so there is only a few that turned out good. Can it be Lucas parts in the camera?

“The machine is dangerous, be careful”

Johan uses a beer can to shim up the fixing on the generator……First he had to taste a few to find the best suitable can…..I think I go and shim up a generator myself….A dirty job but someone have to do it….

                              In Norway this style of helmet went out of fashion in 1945…….

What to do when you have summer holiday……..

This summer I managed to lure my family to go to two motorcycle museums, this time in Sweden. I will post some museum bikes now and then.

Always look out for the Swedish locals; some of them jump out in the road.

First stop was Eds MC og Motor museum.

Some interesting racing machines:

1958 Norton Featherbed, Norton M50 crank case, homemade cylinder and a lot of handmade stuff. 350 cc.

Also a `58 Featherbed special. Modified ES2 engine boosted up with Jawa crank and rod.

A Matchless based road racer.
