R-D1 - 40mm Nokton.

It is great to see another biker on a Royal Enfield!
I own - and proudly ride - a 350 cc Bullet.

About Enfields, I've secretly lusted for one, but my brother convinced me new Japanese bikes are "performers" and hassle free... hmmm, just like Leica Canon talk :p

so, am a Suzuki man myself. dont have any good photo for this moment.

Can Royal Enfields be likened to FSU photo gear?

payasam 04-18-2008 07:32

that Enfield looks like it has a diesel engine. The conversions were common in India.

The daily commute:



Bill: what the?!? Richard: cool machine. John: love that scrambler.

Taken about a year ago on a ride to Yosemite. I intended to ride up the CA coast through the Sierras and come back on Hwy. 395, but couldn't make it through due to bad weather.

Always wanted a Ducati. Went Japanese instead. Taken around 2002.

Keith that Ducati is so fine, if there was no petrol you would just push it around...

Here's a few I spotted a couple of weeks ago at the Hoghton Tower Sprint.

And a couple more

rtphotos, That's really cool! It would be really cool to blow up and print on to a fabric throw and hang from a wall.

nice contrast, love it!

Minsk and vintage vespa

shimo-kitasnap 04-20-2008 12:58

Minsk was shot on superia 100 with a nokton 50/1.5 on a canon P, the vespa was taken with superia 100 and collapsible heliar 50/2 on an M3

shimo-kitasnap 04-20-2008 13:00

oops forgot t mention location. Minsk was taken in Mai Chau, near the Laotion border and northern Vietnam. Vespa was taken at the Vietnam National University in Hanoi at the scooter parking lot at the ground level of the international student dorms.

Keith 04-20-2008 14:49

Wow ... that brings back memories. Honda XL250 Motosport. I toured the south island of New Zealand with my wife back in the early seventies on one of those. What a trip ... two days to go and tossed it away coming of one of the strange little bridges they used to have that shared rail traffic. Pouring rain and got all tangled up in the rail lines coming of the end of the bridge and nearly got cleaned up by a car following. My wife finished up in hospital and I completed the trip back to Wellington on my own on a slightly scarred but still ridable Honda.

Racing one of those would have been interesting ... from memory mine wasn't exactly over endowed with speed! :p

Wayno 04-20-2008 16:14

Monkeybike madness... :D


Rolleiflex 2.8C

Here's some Vincent porn, shot with the only lens I had with me at the time, the VC 21. :eek:

I went to a talk one night given by the designer of that engine ... Phil Irving!

Interesting man but very dry ... from memory a few people nodded off during the monotone delivery! :p

Funny that one !

I always thought that Howard Raymond Davies designed that motor ?

Later to become HRD-Vincent

Yes, I been on a few comets, rapides and one grey flash.

I always understood that Irving was the brains behind the team that came up with the engine design when he was working for them in the thirties ... which was the Rapide. Prior to his joining the company in 1931 their V twins were powered by J.A.P. engines!

A friend of mine ... the owner of the Ducatis in fact ... thinks this is not a Vespa but some German scooter possibly. Do you know any more about it ... he's curious? He has several oldish Vespas also! :p

tedwhite 04-21-2008 06:11

Now that's an old one, Richard. I can't make out the name, but the bulky single cylinder, rear-mounted side stand, drum brakes, etc., mark it as perhaps out of the sixties or seventies (I think). Probably 500-600cc's?

Methinks 250cc two stroke single cylinder. East German, MZ or ETZ or something like that from memory!

Extremely reliable utilitarian motorcycle! :)

kevin m 04-21-2008 06:23

Looks cool, whatever it is...I'm guessing earlier, though, because of the sprung seat and aero front fender and light.

Wahoo 04-21-2008 06:38

The only bikes I have left from my youth are a couple of non std YDS 7 Yamaha's, a lo mileage T150V, 1980 1000EN Suzuki and of course my old '57 featherbed framed Triton (unridden since the mid '60's) :confused:

Here's an old Ariel photographed in the early '80 - not mine.
