The Vintagent: 'MOTO BELLISSIMA' Italian Motorcycle Exhibit AT San Francisco Airport

The Vintagent: 'MOTO BELLISSIMA' Italian Motorcycle Exhibit AT San Francisco Airport | Moto vintage | Scoop.it

The San Francisco Arts Commission is mandated by political brokering to include art and exhibitions in public spaces in SF; a small percentage of all large real estate deals is earmarked thus, and SF Int'l Airport, being one of the largest pieces of real estate in town, has a huge collection of art on the walls of its terminals, with the best at the International Terminal. Each gate has a huge painting (Squeak Carnwath, Enrique Chagoya), and the walkways are dotted with sculptures by the likes of radical ceramicist Peter Voulkos and detritus/horse sculptor Deborah Butterfield.

This year citizens of the USA are being spoilt rotten with 2 installments of See See Motorcycles legendaryOne Motorcycle Show! After a hugely successful show in Portland, Oregon the One Moto Show is now heading to Austin, Texas on the 19th of Arpil. If you're one of the lucky sods that can make it along here's one bike you'll be able to get up close and personal with. It's a custom Honda CM400 Cafe Racer built by Junior Burell of Retro Moto. Jim sent his bike through along with the build story for all of those who can't make it the show to enjoy.

I've never had the urge to eat a motorcycle before but this latest build from Jerikan looks delicious. For some bizarre reason that brown and cream paint scheme reminds me of my favourite chocolate bar and has my mouth watering.

“The Gentleman’s Machine”

 

Story by Greg Williams, Photos by Amee Reehal ©

 

Catching a glimpse of a Sunbeam motorcycle moving down the asphalt is a rare experience, especially in Canada.


A product of the British manufacturing industry, there are two distinct periods of Sunbeam motorcycle production. The first was from 1912 to 1939, and the second from 1946 to 1957. John Marston of Wolverhampton, England first produced fine quality bicycles in the late 1800s, and these pedal-powered conveyances bore the Sunbeam badge. Mechanized transport caught Marston’s attention at the turn of the last century, but rather than pursuing motorcycle construction he developed automobiles, and set up the Sunbeam Motor Car Co. Ltd.

Story by Greg Williams, Photos by Amee Reehal ©

 

The slogans ‘The Unapproachable Norton’ and ‘The World’s Best Road Holder’ defined one of the most fabled British motorcycle builders. Founded in 1898 by James Lansdowne Norton, or Pa, as he was commonly known, Norton brought to the motorcycling masses several technological advancements. Not the least of these developments was the featherbed frame as designed by the McCandless brothers. [...]

Story by Greg Williams; Snaps by Amee Reehal


For Harley-Davidson that single word sums up the VRSCA V-Rod, a machine first introduced to the public nearly 10 years ago. In fact, the overhead cam, fuel-injected, liquid cooled 60-degree V-twin engine that powers the V-Rod was nicknamed the Revolution – simply because it’s quite a departure from, say, the venerable Knucklehead or Panhead.

Creating something from nothing is what Mark Blundell does best. Well, not literally nothing, but from spare parts belonging to a variety of different machines that might otherwise go to waste. Blundell owns and operates Calgary’s TJ’s Cycle, a well-known motorcycle used parts emporium, and his overflowing yard chock-full of exhaust systems, wheels, front ends and controls is his playground.

Rare 1956 Douglas Dragonfly back on the road


Story by Greg Williams, Photos by Amee Reehal

 

A Douglas Dragonfly is distinctive, but it certainly isn’t the most widely recognized British motorcycle. The 350cc flat twin touring machine was built in an era – the mid 1950s — when many British manufacturers were trying to design clean, economical and reliable transportation.[...]

Custom motorcycle builders in the USA and UK have relatively few restrictions on what they can and cannot do. Then you have countries like Taiwan and Germany, which force builders to abide by draconian regulations.

Bringing back to life a 1952 B.S.A. Golden Flash

 

Story by Greg Williams; Photos by Amee Reehal

 

It’s easy to see where some motorcycles get their name.

Take, for instance, the B.S.A. A10 Golden Flash. Introduced late in 1949 as a 1950 model, B.S.A.’s Golden Flash was the first 650cc parallel twin in the company’s range. And, it was finished in a sandy beige – almost gold – colour. This was at a time when most other British motorcycles came in dour black on black. [...]
