Some more snaps from Kempton, these of bikes exhibited in the show.
|A lot of time and skill has gone in to the detail work on this|
Norton ES2 cafe racer. Not sure of the function of the speedo
and rev counter cooling rings but they are works of art!
|Fuller view of the same ES2 cafe racer. How many|
hours went in to its build?
|Acetylene headlight on the 1910 Royal Enfield.|
|Unusual combination. Kawasaki two stroke triple in a|
|Very nicely restored post-war Villers 6E engined OEC. I believe|
the model is an Atlanta.
There was so much interest around this beast it was hard
to get close to take a photo. Nicely engineered V8 powered
Norton featherbed framed special with supercharger.
|Detail from a very lovely 1954 Moto Rumi Junior Corsa|
125cc two stroke twin race bike. Look at those short megaphone
exhausts. What a racket it must make!
|Full view of the Rumi Junior race bike.|
|On the Moto Rumi Club stand was this split motor. A well|
thought out design and it looks nice and easy to work on.
|This was my star of the show. The home built 'Nash Racer' - a|
Model 23 unit construction New Imperial from 1932 sleeved
down from 150 to 125cc. The bike is holder of several Brooklands
records and was in hiding for a good number of years until
|The New Imerial Owners Club put on a fine display of|
machinery. This JAP engined v-twin inspired envy in me!
|Again on the New Imperial Owners Club stand|
this lovely oily rag mid-twenties JAP engined
|The Ariel Owners Club displayed nothing but ex-forces WD/NG|
models in honour of the forthcoming D-Day commemorations.
Five of them in total.
