Not an old bike, but worth posting I think. Snapped this Guzzi V7 Clubman concept at EICMA yesterday.

What Dodge should have done when they created that abomination built around the V10 that could only be ridden in mostly straight lines.

Nice looking bike.

Apparently, that was the inspiration for the bike, Alan Millyard's son saw the Dodge Tomohawk and said to his dad that he cold've done better than that - and he did.

Not just any old Enfield, but an Egli Enfield as in Egli Vincent. The forks are Egli's own.
