Great to see all these non standard Brit bikes. I'm sick to death of over restored gold stars and silver 850 interstate commandos it's nice to see some of the less glamorous machines getting some attention.

Thanks, FR700 ... here's another, coasting down from Dante's View on my 1973 Tiger ... Kalle took this pic from his '48 Indian ... the AMCA was having a coasting "race" ... needless to say, the park rangers thought we were scofflaws ... ha.



There's a ride report and more pics, here.

See you around the campfire,

Rudge

I rode with some Rudges the other day - nice bikes and they get along pretty good for old singles. Heres a few pix

They seem pretty good bikes,

4 valve singles.

They get along OK compared to a lot of grey porridge

Twin port.

This one has patina. The owner coated it in cow shit and left it out in a paddock for 2 years - looks neat eh! Bike speedo.

That is very pretty, is the alloy tank because the original glass fibre one was eaten by ethanol?


The fastback commando came out when I was around 15. It got imprinted onto that delicate teenage mind!

I agree. When I was at the BSAOC rally a few years back I started getting sick of the sight of polished standard DBD34's. There were some cool DBD's there, but they were not standard and were also ridden. One of the reasons I decided not to go stock with mine.

With the interstates, its pretty much Silver or Black around here. thinking of doing mine up in Fireflake red (the bikes original color in roadster form)

When I put this bike together in the mid-80s, every Interstate here seemed to be black/gold. As far as I know, '75 was the only year silver was offered. So my '73 is incorrect.
This bike started life as a Roadster, it still has the Roadster side covers in this picture, but I just had another tank and a set of Interstate sidecovers painted.
