C@D Report

Slowish day at C@D. My favorite '48 Norton International was there (I've posted pics before). You should hear that thing... Knucklehead Steve was back with the Wauseon report, sounds like a good time. Naturally I had to thoroughly examine his bar setup.

Saw a pretty unique Bridgestone GTR 350 two stroke. I overheard someone saying they sold them through Montgomery Wards stores in the late 60's.

Met a guy named Allen P. with a pretty unmolested 1970 Triumph Bonneville. Best part is he bought it new in 1970! I doubt if he's washed it since 1970... Recently put knobbies on it because he likes to ride the East Mountain fire roads. Seemed like a cool enough guy, just looking to ride the damn thing. Great story. I'll see if I can get him out for a group ride sometime. "Barn find" guys were crapping their pants a little.

I like this bike. I hope the owner keeps it going, and gets decades more enjoyment out of it. Too cool!
