Moto Legendes Dijon 2016 pt1

The first of several postings of snaps from a jaunt down to Moto Legendes in Dijon. Always a great event and so many exotic and unusual machines to ogle.

Beautiful MGC motorcycle in the autojumble
area. Unusual cast petrol tank that forms part
of a bolt up frame of castings.

Plenty of projects and vintage spares in the autojumble.

Detail from a Maserati 160cc offered for 10,000 euro.

Now that is what you call patina. Motoconfort
in the jumble area.

Motoconfort again.

And another view of the Motoconfort.

Unrestored bikes very much in evidence. Loved this Guzzi.

Plenty of mopeds around...

Pair of nicely trials modded Motobecanes.

New Precision replica sidecar hitched up to a Hinckley Bonneville.

New Maps were popular this year. Quite a few of them around.

Lots of high quality details on the New Map.

Here there were two New Maps together. One nicely restored...

and the other nicely unrestored.

Captures the atmosphere well. Bikes and tents
all around the circuit and unexpected exotica
to be found modestly hiding away.

Monet Goyon to the fore and another New Map

In line fours of different eras. Henderson and Nimbus.

Love these thirties Gnome et Rhone bikes with their pressed
steel frames.

There was an impressive line up of Japauto
modified Honda fours.

Was really taken with this Japauto. Subtley but heavily modded.

Same Japauto from a greater distance.

1936 Terrot 500cc competition machine.

The French like their combos. This Yamaha
XJ900 makes a sweet outfit.

Rare Peugeot two stroke twin.

Motobecane two stroke triple. A very strong nod towards
Kawasaki is going on with it.

The baby brother Motobecane. This one a 125cc twin.

The Moto Club du Lion laid on a display with
a barn find theme.
