Here's a selection of photos from the Vintage Motorcycle Club of WA "up to 200cc machine show and tell" day. There was an interesting selection of small displacement bikes on display, basically falling into two categories - inter-war year British bikes and 60's Japanese bikes. Keith W organised the show and his family put on a veritable feast for those who attended. Great work Keith!
Although it's a scooter I opted to take the Troll along. It is after all powered by a 143cc MZ motorcycle engine. This was also the first time I'd taken the Troll to a VMCCWA event so it gave the guys an opportunity to see it in the flesh.
This was one of the longest trips I've ever taken the Troll on, but the Troll generally behaved herself.
A Vespa leads a row of Japanese and European lightweights.
A Suzuki 100, French Motobecane 125cc and a 75cc Honda Benly.
A Triumph Tiger Cub, winner of the 'People's Choice' and a Spanish Montesa (owned by Honda).
3 magnificent British lightweights of the Inter-war years,. This is an unrestored 1937 Wolf 175cc. Quite a rare marque that generally used JAP and Villiers proprietory engines. http://www.localhistory.scit.wlv.ac.uk/Museum/Transport/Motorcycles/Wearwell.htm
A 1937 Carlton 122cc. This one used a Villiers engine. http://www.carltoncycles.me.uk/history/motorcycles.htm
1948 Ambassador Series II 198cc. Okay, so 1948 is not quite 'Inter-war' but the design is definitely 1937 - look at the girder forks! Ambassador built a wide range of motorcycles and scooters, powered by a range of proprietory engines. http://cybermotorcycle.com/euro/brands/ambassador_history.htm
We had a good look through Keith's shed. Some interesting projects on the go.
