Default Eye Candy - Vintage Motorcycle Days

Here are several sites where you can enjoy some pretty good photography of some of the bikes on display at the AMA's Vintage Motorcycle Days at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Ah, yes, the simple beauty of a Rickman framed Bonneville. If Triumph built something like that I would seriously consider buying a new bike. Those looks have never been improved upon. In that the Brits surpassed the Italians.

Or better yet a Hindall framed 750 Trumpet with holes drilled in everything to get the weight down to 250 lbs.

It was amazing how light you could make those old Bonnies. I made mine a street tracker back in the day, and it weighed a tad under 300 lbs. fully gassed. Difficult to impossible to do with todays bikes.

I'm serious about the 258 lb. Bonneville desert sled. The crew we use to ride with were hold overs from the old days and hated ring-dings, and one guy, Bill Heywood had a Hindall framed Trumpet that weighed 260 lbs. Bill loved to let people ride it, because the throttle would stick and it would scare the crap out of you. They'd get a big kick out of it...
