The final batch of pictures from the Vintage Revival. Happy memories from a month ago.
|One of a pair of unusual Puch 250 two strokes.|
This one had been modified for racing post war.
That megaphone looks loud!
|And here's the original spec one. Look closely|
and it is a very unusual bike. The crank is in-line
with the frame but to avoid a bulky and crunchy
car type clutch a la BMW the clutch is in the rear
|And here is the Puch's clutch. External band|
brake on the right side, clutch on the left and the
actuating mechanism is a scroll acting on a
pushrod that goes through the hollow rear axle.
|An unusual feature on th AJS is the front brake|
cable that goes through the fork tube. Neat.
|ABC race car.|
|1904 Griffon 500cc Paris Madrid racer and Simplex|
|1900 Lamaudiere et Labre 230cc|
|Singer Motor Wheel from c 1902.|
|Excelsior 1919 board tracker replica comes|
with ready made patina.
|Gorgeous inlet over exhaust v twin Rudge Multi.|
|Perfecta Rigal racing tricycle from 1899. 760cc,|
a side by side motor but perhaps could be called
a very early, if not the first, parallel twin?
|Unusual Hurtu tandem - the frame is made from|
light gauge small diameter twin tubes.
|Lovely veteran Alcyon v twin. Early French|
manufacturers seemed to have been keen on
well made but poorly designed rocking front
forks. A step up from veteran Triumph forks
that were poorly designed and averagely made!
|Early veteran Peugeot restored in race spec.|
|Not sure of the marque but this ladies cycle|
is hugely unusual.
|A leaf spring stands in for the saddle tube and|
the remainder fo the frame is a casting. It
|Mouth watering 8 valve Koehler Escoffier v twin.|
|The Koehler Escoffier in all its magnificence.|
|Finally, from the bike park, I really liked this Kawasaki W650|
