The purpose of this web site is simply to share my small private collection with fellow enthusiasts.

They live in climate controlled luxury and get regular maintenance and detailing but don’t get viewed often enough. I hope you enjoy them and I welcome your comments (hopefully positive). These motorcycles are not for sale at this time. However if you want to discuss something seriously, feel free to contact me.

What’s New

 

I hope to have many new updates on the 36 VLH build up soon with inserted pictures.

New bikes to show you soon! 1935 HD VLDD, 1930 HD V and the start of a full restoration of a 1934 HD VLD

Best regards to all the new Owners. I hope you are enjoying these fine bikes.

1987 Bimota DB1SR In Original Crate is SOLD and off to Ontario, Canada

This DB1SR is quite possibly one of only two still in the crate. I could stand corrected but am only aware of there being one other and I can’t say if it is still in or on its crate. When I received this bike I raised the crate top off the platform for only the […]
