...at the Glenn H Curtiss museum in Hammondsport NY. A break in cold snowy weather allowed safe travel and a large crowd filled the museum. More people, more friends, more new acquaintances, more vendors with both parts and collectibles, and a lot of motorcycles not seen before. Should have taken pics of some vendor tables (kicking self). Great place to learn about what events are scheduled for the upcoming year. Bob Harris (Dick's nephew) did an outstanding job bringing all this together with support from Museum Director Ben Johnson. Here's Bob adding some foggy atmosphere with two of his three Kreidler Floretts...

There was a lot of people at this event, but I took most of these photos before the crowd filled in. Always some brave soul on a Ural rig or a BMW...

Seasonally correct display outside -behind the helmet you can an interchangeable wheel front end.

Event fliers for 2019 go to the NY State Brit/Euro/Vintage Event Calendar at www.bmccny.org to learn more - I'll need a day or two to post these latest updates... Thanks. Al

AL,
thank you for posting the photos! Great to see such a good turnout. I look forward to more pix if you have them.
