This bike is a beautiful piece of history. Not only did it offer spectacular performance, it offered a set of features rarely seen on a sport bike. The four-stroke engine was able to satisfy the needs of any biker, including those interested in racing, without special customization (sadly to some like myself). This was the result of italian design and superior craftmanship, combining the potential of the twin-cylinder engine with the unrivalled mechanics of the legendary 750 Imola. BMWcycles just sold one with only 125 miles on it. Fresh out of the crate. Their site is worth checking out for other classic bikes for sale.

I’m taking the kids to The Barber Vintage Motorsport Museum instead. The rides look like more fun. Heres a selection of their rides…
Found this shot of Jack Black on what looks like an old Triumph Dirt Tracker. He is obviously paying homage to Evel Knievel. Thought I’d add a pic of the legend himself. Of course Evel is riding the all american Harley Davidson. Some of you might be surprised to hear that Evel Knievel owned a Honda Motorbike Dealership in the 60’s.
Only a few days since I wrote about the 59 club on this blog I have just heard that Father Bill Shergold died 2 days ago. He was one of the founders of the club. No doubt he will be missed by loads of rockers and bikers all over the world. RIP.

Stupid Crown has a unique name that matches their unique style. They are another Japanese Custom Shop producing some out of the ordinary bikes. The Honda Monkey sidecar pic is one of my favourites…
The 59 Club played a major part in shaping the Rocker and Cafe Racer culture. I love these vintage pictures from the 59 club days. If you want to see more check out Graham Hulletts Photographic Collection . (Graham was the club leader from 1962 to 1970).
This guy from Britian’s Flat Racer loves his BMW Cafe racers. He has some beautiful bikes for sale on his website. Looks like he has a great eye for classic Cafe Racer lines. Love the detail, right down to the positioning of that BMW badge.
