barber vintage motorcycle festival

swapmeets. YES.

i didnt really get any good photos because i left film at the store, and my cell phone died. But i did get a photograph of a Vincent Black Shadow. Fastest bike in the 50’s. It bolstered 3 drum brakes: two up front and one in the rear. Jake told me this the other day and i have been fascinated ever since. The clutch handle actually has an extra handle that works as a break too. 150+ miles per hour in the 50’s was quite a feat. Now this bike is worth around $100,000. I’m waiting for that special barn find.


got to see a little vintage road racing.

i bought some beat up moto guzzi panniers to go on the honda. $20. no big deal.
