The Vintage Mile at Cal Expo ( Part Two )


A Yamaha single....there were a lot of Yamaha singles and twins..

Came back and added some more bike pics to look at. Just going to say that it was a lot of fun to hang out on the 'inside' of the track...got to see some 'old' friends, and meet some new ones. Who knows maybe next time I might be on the track myself. Been inspired to scratch an itch and get some of my vintage bikes together. It was pretty cool to see Gary, Dimitri, and Julian having a go at the 'Mile' track here at Cal-Expo. 

Might even get back to an unfinished post on some Classic Japanese bikes. Will be posting updates on my various projects soon...so stay tuned.

Think we will end this post with a 'Co-Built' sticker spotted on the back of the Deus Ex Machina van...I'm curious to see if the two short video clips that were laboriously uploaded via the phone have really 'taken'. If they worked...I just might get back here and upload some more...
