Motorcycle Travel Series by @velimir 'Bojan's Moto Workshop' (Part #185)
There is some magic in old motorcycles. I doubt there is a single person who can fully explain as to why. The technology is old, the looks are outdated but nonetheless one enjoys to see and sit on an old bike. I know that I do. Take a look at this beautiful Triumph. The colour is weird, but the lines are not flat at all. Don't you just love it? There is a whole subculture within biker's community, consisting of people who love to own bikes from the past.
A friend of mine owns two HDs. He doesn't ride for years. One of his Harleys was made in 1931. and the other in 1942. However, he keeps them disassembled in several boxes up at his attic. Oh, just crossed my mind that I should introduce him to Bojan. Two of them might enjoy a long chat about old engines revving. An idea for my next visit.
The speedometer position is very specific. It is a part of the front light. More so, the entire dashboard is located on top of it. This has not been a designer's choice for a long time. "Cute" is the first word coming to my mind.
The ignition key is all the way back, under the seat.
The luggage rack is mounted on the reservoir, meaning that the main luggage was transported in front of the rider, not behind, as it is today. However, we can still see small bags in that place and a map in a plastic holder on top of them, on occasion. Especially when it comes to long-distance travel bikers.
So, old or not, there is quite a bit of charm in this one. Maybe I'd prefer to see it as an exhibit at some cool restaurant than riding it. Both ways, the magic is undeniable.
Wherever the road takes us!
Enjoy your day! :-)
