Hinshaw Honda

I was unfortunately not able to make it to the Vintage Bike Show at Hinshaw Motorcycles last weekend. I had still intended to to get there to register Vaughn for the Ryan Dungey signed 450SX FE they are giving away so when Nate proposed a ride down there today I didn't have to think about it long. We rolled really close to closing time so we didn't have loads of time to hang around. Hinshaw is the only dealer I'm aware of that is an official new Norton dealer. Since they are also a Polaris dealer I'm super curious if the are planning to be a new Indian dealer. I didn't have a chance to ask.

I was pleasantly surprised by the number of vintage bikes they have on display. Especially because many of them are makes and model you don't frequently see nicely restored. They are even have a few bikes that might have been restored for the purpose of resell .The prices a pretty high but I still think it's really cool. Here a few photos of some bikes on display. Sorry lame quality of some of the photos.

"Vaughn's" KTM 450 SX FE
This is  KTM 50 Vaughn really needs. Note the bikes visible in the top right corner. They help to give you a feel for the number vintage bikes on display.
Norton Atlas

These late 70's CR's are some of my all time favorite MX'ers aesthetically

I was really happy to see all these beautifully restored CB's. Given popularity of certain custom bike trends finding unmolested CB's could be a real challenge one day.
