It's a '28 R52 that belongs to a friend. Its 500cc engine generates a whopping 12 HP. It's a lot of work to ride. Left hand is clutch and spark advance lever. Right hand is front brake, fuel lever, and air lever. Right heel is used for the rear brake.



Note the spark plug caps... great for zapping you in the shins!

A little disclaimer fellows, I know little of these oldies, but I like them a lot. So, here are some pics from a little show.


According to the owner, a bike similar to this won the Isle of Man in 1926, top speed 72mph.

They do look like that in this pic though.

Had the pleasure to meet some local vintage bike aficionados this past Saturday morning.






They filled the restaurant parking lot with some interesting machinery.




















































































These guys are walking encyclopedias of old motorcycling.

I was wondering too about them. Unfortunately the owner wasn't around, and then I got sidetracked with other bikes and forgot about that. All I can say is that they're not in the same plan, they wouldn't interfere. However, even if they did, I don't think it matters since I don't think that it would be feasible to pull them both at different angles, unless pulled fully in.

I have to get around posting the other pictures.

These need some TLC, although they look OK this way too
