Vincent Lawn Mower

For the motorcycle collector that has everything (like George Barber), here's a Vincent lawn mower. If you have more of a custom bent you might prefer to go this route.

Custom Evolution

I been a fan of Triumpher's black rigid Unit Triumph for years. It's just proportionally perfect and timelessly simple. I must admit I was a little bummed to see it's been converted back to a strutted swingarm. He appears to ride it a lot and it must be the bike he wants so more power to him. I'm still allow to morn a little. The bars, the megaphones, the P-pad. Pretty much perfection. Maybe my taste is behind the fashion curve or whatever but I just don't give a shit.

Vintage Airtime

Just in case you thought the "hugeness" of motocross today was purely an evolution of equipment here's a shot of Guy Cooper going pretty huge on a 1974 Bultaco. This bike might have a full 4" of suspension travel. Guy must have big balls and very strong ankles. Incidentally Guy is also 54 years old.

Bob Budschat's memorial is this Saturday in Maltby. Sadly I'm unable to make it but National #13 Bob Budschat was a real deal living legend. Race in peace, Bob.

Photochop

This one is for George. The exceptionally rare Ferrari 330 GT Superbird. Apparently they were only sold in Canada...
