Moto Legendes Dijon 2016 pt2

More pics from Moto Legendes....

1926 Terrot Ladies Model.

Front end of a Derny Tandem cycle pacer.

Detail from a veteran FN four. Check the kick
start arrangement direct on to the crank.

Unusual unknown bicycle with leaf spring seat pillar arrangement.

Not too sure of the marque but the engine is
a French AMC dohc unit.

Drive side of the AMC motor.

hmmm... not the prettiest engine but purposeful.
In the UK DMW also tried out these motors.

Sweetly done Terrot cafe racer.

Vintage combo looks out to the club line up.

Super rare and desirable Italjet Griffon with Triumph motor.

1954 Vespa with Bufflier sidecar.

Magnat Debon racer. Over in France you still
see a lot of proper vintage race bikes like were
a staple of the scene in the UK in the earlier days
of the vintage movement. In the UK they've now
been pensioned from racing and restored back to
catalogue. Over in France they are still gloriously
used and abused. This machine carried a Norton
Commando front brake.

Folks marvel at a motorised tandem...

Gitane Testi in blue metal flake.

Sparkly Gitane.

Sweet Gus Kuhn Commando.

Close up on the Gus Kuhn Commando.

Great line up from the Indian Club of France.

They even brought along a couple of teepees.
To the fore is a Prince.
Stunning welding on the Barigo supermono
race bike.

Another view of the Barrigo frame. Quite in
awe of this craftsmanship.

Ohc Koehler Escoffier v twin race machine. Awesome.

Drive side view of the Koehler Escoffier.

Another AMC dohc engined machine.

An earlier Koehler Escoffier v twin. This one ohv
rather than ohc. Unusual tappet adjustment on
eccentric bearings.

Close up of the Koehler Escoffier's top end.

And drive side of the Koehler Escoffier. Also unusual is the
magneto mounted between the cylinders. Widely splayed
apart cylinders belie deeply spiggoted barrels and a long

Ohc Alcyon looking remarkably like a Velocette

Cracking Terrot veteran race machine.

Moto Legendes is a great place to see some
really early machinery. This is a 1902 330cc
water cooled Manon.

Another view of the 1902 Manon.
