Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
What a bunch of pomp and ceremony. There are 2 simple rules when doing bicycle cycle photo photography:
Rule 1. Background must be a garage door, cream if possible.
Rule 2. Drive side must be facing the camera.
That's it, job done.
You've touched one of these? Possibly one of the rarest motorcycles ever made. I'm impressed no end.
I was a mechanic at Action for a while then moved on to their "big project" . The racing had just finished and they were onto the model they were trying to turn into the production bike.
I got very good at stripping it down to the crank and back again.
It really was an impressive motor, I rode many miles on the motor itself but not the chassis. It went through a couple of morphs into the chopper thingy. The power it put out was beautiful.
But it was doomed from the start.
Excellent advice Cray. This weekend I'll paint my garage door cream. Was sick of the blue anyway.
What a stroke of luck being able to work and ride one. I saw a Hunwick Hallam at the Moto GP about five or six years ago and that's the only one I've seen in the flesh. I seem to recall that they're called something else these days. Turn it onto a cruiser........... that'll work. This is why motorcycles and motorcycling are dying a slow death.
I'm into the bevels so I love your comparison with the HW and pulling apart some Simplex gear. Bicycle technology seems to freak some out.
