OLD MOTORCYCLES

Art work by John Evans

This page is dedicated to those old English, American and
other Motorcycles. The Triumph, BSA, Ariel, Velocette, Norton,
Royal Enfield, Indian, J.A.P, AJS and those Scramblers of the 1960's
And for those a little less serious how about a
1947 Cushman Model 52



 
Motorcycles and particularly the Harley-Davidson have always interested me.
Although I have never owned one, it was something that was always on my mind.
I have been collecting pictures of old cars, trucks and motorcycles for some time and my collection of Harley-Davidson pictures became such that I thought I would share them. This collection has grown considerably since I started this web site back in 2006. I even decided to include some of the newer bikes and now have Harley's up to 2008. 

And please forgive me but I have included some nice old English bikes.
Most of these images have come from news groups but like with my car pages, I invite any of my visitors to submit their favorite Harley-Davidson picture or a British bike. All I ask is that they give me their name and if possible where they live. Street address are not required. If you like, a brief story on the bike would be nice.
The email address is johnmacdonald@summerville-novascotia.com

I was given the following 1950's and 60's British motorcycle ads by Steven D. Myers and I thought it would be nice to share them. Some of these are very rare as are the bikes they represent.
These is also a collection of old very rare British bike pictures

The following was an email that has been circulating and was sent to me by my brother.
I thought it was a story that should be told again.
If any of you want to pass it around to your friends please feel free to copy it.
JUST A BIKER

I saw you; hug your purse closer to you in the grocery store line. But you didn't see me put an extra $10.00 in the collection plate last Sunday. 
I saw you pull your child closer when we passed each other on the sidewalk. But you didn't see me playing Santa at the local Mall.
I saw you change your mind about going into the restaurant when you saw my bike parked out front. But you didn't see me attending a meeting to raise more money for the hurricane relief.
I saw you roll up your window and shake your head when I rode by. But you didn't see me riding behind you when you flicked your cigarette butt out the car window.
I saw you frown at me when I smiled at your children. But you didn't see me when I took time off from work to run toys to the homeless. 
I saw you stare at my long hair. But you didn't see me and my friends cut ten inches off for 
Locks of Love. 
I saw you roll your eyes at our Leather jackets and gloves. But you didn't see me and my brothers donate our old ones to those that had none.
I saw you look in fright at my tattoos. But you didn't see me cry as my children where born or have their name written over and in my heart. 
I saw you change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere. But you didn't see me going home to be with my family.
I saw you, complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can be. But you didn't see me when you were changing the CD and drifted into my lane.
I saw you yelling at your kids in the car. But you didn't see me pat my child's hands knowing she was safe behind me. 
I saw you reading the newspaper or map as you drove down the road. But you didn't see me squeeze my wife's leg when she told me to take the next turn.
I saw you race down the road in the rain. But you didn't see me get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car to go on his date.
I saw you run the yellow light just to save a few minutes of time. But you didn't see me trying to turn right.
I saw you cut me off because you needed to be in the lane I was in. But you didn't see me leave the road.
I saw you, waiting impatiently for my friends to pass. But you didn't see me. I wasn't there.
I saw you go home to your family. But you didn't see me. Because I died that day you cut me off. 
I was just a biker. A person with friends and a family. But you didn't see me.
Repost this around in hopes that people will understand the biker community..
If you don't repost this, it sucks to be you. I hope you never lose someone that rides.

EVEN IF YOU DON'T LIKE US, RESPECT OUR RIGHTS TO RIDE WHAT WE CHOOSE AND TAKE A FEW EXTRA SECONDS TO BE SURE WE ARE NOT IN 'YOUR' WAY

 The Scramblers
And who can remember these races?
Gets the blood flowing just looking at it.

DATE:  August 1966
CLUB:  Keystone M.C. of Emmaus, PA
TRACK:  TT Scrambles
EVENT:  250cc Expert Class
A  pair of Harley-Davidson 250cc Sprints sporting white plates with black numerals. That said, they must be expert riders. I vaguely remember a couple guys with those green racing vests invading District Six from New York or points north back in the mid-sixties. They got around the tracks pretty well when they showed up but were basically no competition for the locals. Judging from the dust, they were back-markers at this stage of the race BUT at least they managed to find each other and race for bragging rights in the Aermacchi Camp and in the end, that was what it was all about anyway.
The rider pictured in our recent Dumbass Photo Caption Contest #2 was Randy Bynoe (#511) 
aboard his trusty 250cc Harley-Davidson Sprint.
Randy Bynoe (#511) was in his mid-to-late-fifties when he competed in the District Six scrambles in the late 1960s and early 1970s. His fellow competitors, promoting club members and District Six officials affectionately referred to him as “Old Time Randy”. Randy was a regular fixture on his 250cc Harley-Davidson Sprint during the first few years that I covered the scrambles scene. Surprisingly, “Old Time Randy” showed up with a new-fangled Bultaco Pursang in the early-seventies and parked his old H-D Sprint. I guess he just got tired of chasing them and went with the “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.” philosophy.
Randy’s teammate was Cliff Hoke (#510) who competed in the Open Amateur Class aboard a Harley-Davidson Sportster. He was usually the sole Harley rider in that class. Cliff was also up in years but I never heard anyone refer to him as “Old Time Cliff”. He was simply “Old Time Randy’s” buddy. What was even more amazing than these two old-timers still competing at their age was the distance that they traveled to the races each weekend. Randy Bynoe hailed from Amityville, Long Island, New York and his buddy Cliff Hoke was from Jamaica, Long Island, New York. I can only imagine what those long rides to and from the District Six tracks in that old panel truck must have been like week in and week out.

Triumph

This Bonnie is owned by Adam Pratt. He bought it as a roller, most missing, He made a lot of the parts for it.
He used a 37 Ford tail light, a WW2  trench knife handle for the kicker, and a WW2 first aid kit given to him by his grandfather for my battery box to name a few pieces...

Ariel
1958 Ariel Square Four, 4 cylinders, 1000 cc

A friend of mine owned this bike back in 1962. 
It was a big heavy bike that wasn't too fast from the starting line but it was a great touring bike. 
I was on the back seat one time with the speedometer showing 140 mph. Yes I was impressed and so was the cop that was sitting having a coffee as we went by. He never moved.
The bike was painted black but after two serious accidents he thought maybe a colour change 
was in order. These pictures were taken on the first day he took it out after that paint job. 
You can see that the exaust was not installed 
yet. Parts were hard to find for it so the exaust had to be custom built.

These pictures were submitted by Wayne Golden, Mercedes, TX
He had the following to say about this scooter.
"This Cushman was one that I owned when I was a kid. It was old when I got it so I would think it would have been built on the 40's.  Photo was probably taken in 1952.  I was born in 1939 so these are old photos.
