Very nice pix, again, Max. I especially like the Norton...'heavy twin' as they call it in my workshop manual. I have the heavy twin in my Matchless...Atlas 750cc engine with sports cams, dual Amals.

The Honda also takes me back and that Seeley...I've read about them, never seen one, don't think too many made their way to the Canadian prairies.

Pictures well exposed...just as I like it, to see all the details while the bikes are at speed. For a motorcycle enthusiast like myself, who has viewed many pictures of vintage (and modern) racing bikes over the years...I like this style of photo.

For the enthusiast I would say they are well done...we like to see the detail.

Thanks for providing these pictures of vintage bikes, much appreciated not only for the shots, but the style which I try to emulate.

I'm from the era when many of the vintage bikes were new...I'm old . The sounds they make also have an appeal, everything from rare, high revving 4 cyl. Dohc (MV's), to OHV Twins (Modified Nortons, BSA's, Matchless, Triumph) to big singles like Matchless and Norton and BSA Gold Star...not just a visual, but an aural treat.The racing season is nearly over but if their is any more Classic's i will take some for you.Thank you, Ireland seems to have a very active racing season.

Regards Tom
The modern stuff is nice too, but more often covered by race fairings, moreso than the older stuff...hard to see the mechanicals.
