Thanks for sharing Simon, I love that place and could quite happily get lost in there for days.

Cheers Tom

Ss thanks Simon. I didn't go this year but thanks to you I got to see that fabulous 1953 Indian Chief I like so much there. The last of the original tribe.

One of the pictures is of the 1916 Traub, the rarest motorcycle in the world. Here's a video.

Not my videos. They are available from YouTube.  Glad everyone is enjoying the pictures.

I really found the section where they used motorcycle engines to build powered tools to be interesting. Guess the used motorcycle engine was a cheap source of motorized power.

Simon, that place is awesome. Impossible to see everything in one visit. We got a member that is a pretty good tour guide when you can make him come out of his shell.  ;D

Thanks for sharing  :orange:

Harley had a peaches and cream color scheme on the '92 Heritage (old Ford truck colors from the 50's) that still turns my head every time I see one...beautiful bikes...

Thanks for sharing.

I rode past this place in August. I so badly wanted to go in but my buddies were all in a rush to get going. Will not make that mistake when I am in that area again.
