It was good to see so many of the usual suspects, and to meet T120Mike..

Is that Graham buying a beer Shaun!

Thanks for the pictures Kev lad they are very good and up to your normal standard, brilliant. Was Graham trying to buy that three wheeler by any chance, I think that would suit him quite well, I can just see him rolling up to the Half moon & Seven Stars on that or the Red Lion, ha, ha, Shaun would have a field day.

That DID look like Graham gettin' 'em in, perhaps it's because he knew he may never see Shaun again, Shaun may decide to emigrate after this NZ trip.

Lots of neat old bikes there, always interesting to see some of the models that we seldom see over here, no telling what's in people's sheds and cellars ....

I stopped believing for a little while this morning. Journey is really going to be upset.

Kev, again many thanks for the great photographic record. It was great to meet you, Graham, Grandad and all the BritBike gang. Was that a picture of Graham actually buying me a drink? (Yes folks, its true, Graham bought me a drink! I had to lie down from the shock and so did he! The paramedics were called and injected a strong dose of 5 notes into his wallet and he quickly recovered!). Cheers Graham!
A cracking day out and no cheese!

Yes it was good to see so many folk shaking off the cabin fever. I could see plenty of folk with lists clamped in their frozen hands muttering about batteries, oil and so on...

Now it's true Graham bought a round, but here he is a bit bewildered about how it all works:



That's called change Graham you sometimes get it back from the person serving the beers.

Now as Kev takes the best photos of the meet I just took some snaps of some bikes outside that caught my attention.

A BSA Shaun might like:



Another variation on the theme:



And from the sublime:



to, well I don't know what it is, honest, no idea:



Good to see everyone, even got a few bits for some necessary improvements to the fleet... smile

Wondering what the next project will be!

Tank might have been off a Brough Sup., twin fillers, chromed/nickled finish. Just a guess, been 33 years since I was within touching distance of one.
Thanks for the pics, Kev, lets us know what we are missing over here, though some of the prices lokked scarey to me, but then the last new bike I bought cost me about $1200.00!


Mike, home is where we moor it.

The three wheeler was your actual Honda C90 cub trike, a quest tool if ever there was one.

Rocket Goldstars , like Goldstars, go for top money now Mike, it is still possible to pick up a classic for not too much money, look at that nice James trials machine, 650 seems like a good deal to me.

Thanks for sharing the photos Kev!

Of particular interest to me is the 1936 circa Aero Douglas since I own one inherited from my late brother (still stored in the UK at HarryKUK's place).

600sv fore an'aft flat twin. Hand-shift 4-speed gearbox with outside flywheel clutch. Top speed 55mph or so but lots of torque. Strange bike but nice and smooth. Used to like riding it with sidecar attached.

Photos of mine with and without sidecar (taken in the mid-60's):

I seem to recall it was priced around the 6k mark, nice looking bike. Thanks for posting those old pictures.

Kinda surprised at the high asking price as they aren't really a sort-after bike being somewhat of an anachronism with parts hard to obtain as well.

Now if it had been a dirt-track Douggie...? Would love to have one of those. Dunno what I'd do with it though other than just look it!

Thanks for the follow-up info anyway. bigt

BTW, they sound nice running - a low throaty growl...

That looks like it could be a Villiers engine, if so then it could well be a Bond P1 or P2 frown
