Is a *great* little show, very geniune...no attitude. Usually some very interesting bikes as well. So show yours, or show up. I'll probably be there in my 4-wheel toy after 10:30 or 11:00a.

Nice photos Chris! Man, I love those old 750 sports and supersports. What's the story with those two Harley's? One looked like it had a Duc engine...?

Is the same bike, just different views. It is an "Aermacchi", an Ital bike that Harley "badged" in the early 70's. Harley hoped it could quickly plug a gap in it's product line in the cheap, small-displacement class of bikes that the Japanese were capitalizing on. Dunno who mfr's the motor.

The other interesting one is the Bimota Tesi (dsc00024), check out that front wheel. (hint: hub steering)

Was a great show! Maybe next year we can get a good monster turnout.
