Honda RC166

The absolutely insane Honda RC166 6 cylinder 250cc racer. Grand Prix racing was dominated in this era by two strokes by Honda was largely the 4 stroke hold out. DOHC, 24-valve inline six-cylinder engine, the 250-class RC166 roared its way through six open megaphone exhaust pipes at 18,000 RPM. Crazy days.

Earle's BSA

From the Rider's Show, Doug Earle's 1951 BSA B33. I don't remember the exact story but I believe the bike originally belonged to a friend of Doug's Dad who raced it. Doug's dad Dick later bought it from him. It's now Doug's. It's sits as built in the mid/late 50's and Doug rides it all the time. Perfect down to every single part. I'm dying to get a photo of my finished Pre-Unit project next to it.

The photo came from the Rider's Show Instagram. I don't know who to credit for the photo but it's stunning.

Rider's Show - 2016

Flathead Rob, Vaughn and I made the trek down to the Rider's Show today. It was relatively small (about 25 bikes). I'm having some phone problems and missed at least 1/3 of the bikes, all the customs/choppers. It was a really good show but the weather was nice enough I really wished I was riding instead...
