The second and final selection of photos from my wanderings around the Bristol Show last weekend. So many more marvelous motos that I didn't get to snap due to the crowds but I hope you enjoy the selection.
|Raleigh 500cc Sports.|
|Lovely early Greeves. A 1955 20T trials model. Last year of the|
rubber in torsion rear suspension. Note also how the early
models have cast ally engine plates.
|The Gold Star Owners Club had a brace of|
pre-war Goldies on their stand.
|Royal Enfield Bullet diesel conversion. One of the nicest|
I've seen. Rather than using an industrial unit this motor
is from an Aixam microcar. It is 487cc, water cooled, cruises
comfortably at 65mph and gives 150mpg.
|Nice period badge seen on Matchless JAP|
|And t'other side of the Matchless JAP.|
|Just one of the many crackers on the Vincent|
Owners Club stand. A Python engined HRD.
Python was the name Rudge gave to their motors
when they supplied them to other manufacturers.
|Other side of the HRD Python. Note the four|
valve bronze cylinder head.
|Something rather special. A 1935 works HRD|
racer used in the 1935 TT. It was rebuilt for the 1936
TT with a Zoller supercharger fitted. However the
supercharged arrangement proved unsuccessful
in practice so was removed for the race.
|One of the two pre-war HRD twins on the VOC stand.|
|Very impressive handiwork and the bike is obviously used too.|
|1929 Harley Davidson model DL 750cc. Nearly finished and|
very shiny on the Wessex Veteran and Vintage VMCC stand.
