I like these, looks great fun, MX in the beginning was so much like this. It is good to see the vintage 'old school' bikes too. Good job, thanks.

Another round of great shots. That first picture with the two big , 4 stroke singles is wonderful. Behind the J.A.P. (J.A. Priestly) engined scrambler....looks to be a Matchless G 80CS, which is of particular interest to me.

I have a small (two-lol) vintage motorcycle collection and one of them is a '67 Matchless G15CS Scrambler. This has a 750cc Norton twin engine, in a Matchless frame....skid plates, low gearing, etc....in North America they were referred to as Desert Sleds.

Thanks for posting Max. I enjoyed all of the pictures....takes me back to the '60's.

Also nice to see the CZ racing.

In your area (Ireland ?) you seem to have a wealth of fine racing machinery....cars, motorcycles....vintage and current.When i get a chance will go through a few more to see if i have one of the CZ i am sure i will !!!

Thank you Tom. Looking forward to seeing any pictures you may have. BTW, I note that you indicated that some of the pictures are taken in Northern Ireland. My Grandfather was from Ballymena.

Thank you for the gracious offer. Much appreciated.

I've never been to Ireland, but have been to Scotland and England. I know I've missed a beautiful country in Ireland and one of these days would like to see it.

Ireland is on my 'bucket' list.
