Are you that lonely that you have to talk tome about your bike?

 

I'm thrilled you have one. A large % of bikers end up having serious accidents. Looks like we've found the cause of your brain damage.more to come.yippee.

Had an Atlas & the Commando - had a thing for British bikes. All British bikes were ( are ) very cool. BSA Victor - Triumph Tiger & Bonneville - Royal Enfield. Don't ride street very much these past years. Still do dirt. At it's time - Norton was the fastest production bike. Really jumped ( until I got drunk as a money & hit that pot hole ).

NOW that you have insulted enough people and made an a$$hole outta yourself, you are trying to backpeddle so fast that you probably left your shoes at the last crosswalk. :)

Vincent Black Shadow | Hemmings Daily - Hemmings Motor News

1955 Vincent Black Shadow Series C. ... The most expensive bike at the sale seemed to be a 1952 Vincent Black Shadow, with a $250,000 price tag.

A restored ex-works Vincent Black Shadow will also be offered. This bike was used as part of the factory’s effort to establish a new 24-hour speed record at Montlhéry, France, in 1952. Looking no worse for the wear, the Black Shadow is expected to fetch $150,000 to $200,000. Another Vincent of note, a 1949 998cc ‘Red’ Rapide is expected to draw many bidders with deep pockets and an appreciation for British performance bikes. - See more at: http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/tag/vincent-black-shadow/#sthash.H4TxM1Wn.dpuf

1939 Brough Superior SS100 for sale

1939 Brough Superior SS100

Every now and then something special comes up for sale and, in my book, this qualifies, a 1939 Brough Superior SS100. Fully restored, it looks about as fine as they come. The best part is it's ready to ride, not just display. Bikes like these should be exercised now and then, it's what they were built for.

1939 Brough Superior SS100

The buy it now price is $250,000 but the owner says the reserve is lower so who knows what it will take to put this bike in your collection. These so seldom come up for sale, it should attract a lot of interest. This should be fun to watch.

No - it's a Cafe. I had a 75. I believe 76 or 77 was the last year.
