Vintage Motorcycle Days has so many cool bikes on display you forget to take photos of everything but I thought I would put up a few more from the ones I took.
The photo above is a 1950 DynaCycle, which won the American Best of Show award. Owner Don Dungan restored it. The engine is an add on unit for a bicycle like so many earlier motorcycles. I just noticed while looking at the photo, doesn’t that look like an inverted fork?
Many more photos below:
This is a nice example of a Yamaha 650 street tracker conversion which seems pretty popular. I like these bikes which seem to be a lot more common on the American side of the ocean due to the flat track racing over here, I don’t think there is the same interest in these in Europe or Australia, though some of our readers from those countries can correct me if I’m wrong on that.
This is a 1973 Norton Commando VR880, one of the units produced by Kenny Dreer. They really have the right look and occasionally you’ll see one of these up for sale. I can’t imagine a Norton enthusiast not wanting one of these beauties.
Just a nice clean example of a 1952 Moto Guzzi 500cc Falcone. You see bikes like this all over the place at Vintage Days.
This Sportster was either a replica or a restored original from the TV show “Then Came Bronson.” They didn’t make a note on the display which it was but it looked exactly like the one in the show. Goin’ down that long lonesome highway …
One of the neat things about looking at the bikes in a show like this is how many ideas you get about potential projects or seeing how someone else did something you were thinking about doing. Neat stuff.
