I have some pic's of the bikes on the track, but as access is usually not allowed in the pit area I spent a bit of time there.
The only disappointing aspect of the weekend is that much of the "Forgotton Era" bikes I used to sell service and race myself when they were new! I'm not THAT old surely......

Wow! I like that old Indian. Never saw one that old before your pic. I went to Daytona Biketoberfest in 2012, and shot these pics of an old Harley Davidson. The first one:

1914 HD



And the other one, a 1916 HD.



They've come a long way since then. Thanks for posting those pictures.

Wow ! Those are some bikes, Simiwills. Velocette 500 single , BSA Gold Star 500cc and that beautiful Indian V twin.

Hawgwild...some nice old Harley's. There's a guy in my town that has a few very old H-D's similar to that.

Simon - Great job on capturing all these (in all three sets) - colors and details just right.

No, of course you're not that old - it's just that machines age much faster than we do!!

Thanks all, it was fun weekend, I guess they will all be put away until next year!

Yes Hawgwild, it was a very nice Indian, the new ones have just been re-introduced here, but haven't seen any in the skin yet.

Thanks Mole, I think your idea must be correct.

Cool old Harleys as for the rest they are neet to look at but I don't have the knowledge to appreciate them, never got into bikes. I did assist in building some frame and tank welding systems for Harley,
