It was a double event weekend . After Saturday's car event in Fryeburg , on Sunday we made our way to the Hiram fair grounds for an antique motorcycle event .
Turns out the event was organized among others by Joe Kendall and Ron Lockwood , fellow Volvo Club of Maine guys . As expected , there were some "sights to behold" . The good , the bad , and the ugly . How do I put this politely ? . . . the full breadth of "specimens" was on display . And believe me there is some disturbing stuff lurking in the backwoods of Maine associated with the motorbike world . Truly frightening sights , so its best to make a concentrated effort to focus on the purely mechanical .
A 1910 Excelsior
. . . with a whooping 3 & 1/2 HP
And a Harley of similar vintage
And a Harley Davidson Topper . . . go figure I never knew they had made such a thing .
A pair of restored Harleys from the 1930s
A 1973? BMW R-75-5 toaster is more my style .
Ron Lockwood's impeccable Norton Commando 750 .
And a 1972 Norton .
A 1970? Honda CL360
A 1960s Honda Dream
Mike Evringham's impeccably restored 1965 Honda CB77 , this gem was better than new .
As well as his equally immaculate refurbished 1968? Yamaha .
One fellow had a bunch of Minibikes among them a 1972 80cc Rupp , one of the last ever made.
Meanwhile at the other end of the fairgrounds . . .
. . . the local boys were making some noise of their own in the sand pit . . .
