    Enfield seems to be really pushing ads of late. I've even seen them on TV.

    New management, new models, rapturous reviews on products and quality, nailed the classics without a leak market. They've re invented themselves in a very good way. Clever.

    Pricing and launch finally announced on the Goldstar I see too.

    1995 BMW R100GS PD Classic in Factory Crate

    This 1995 BMW R100GS PD Classic is one of a limited number produced and has remained in its factory shipping crate since importation to Canada and original dealer delivery to Blackfoot Motosports of Calgary, Alberta. The bike features a 980cc opposed twin paired with a five-speed transmission as well as a fairing, a tinted wind deflector, hand guards, heated grips, a headlight grill, a flared front fender, a black two-up seat, a rear luggage rack, an aluminum skid plate, and a single-sided swingarm with a monoshock and an enclosed driveshaft. The Classic variant adds an Avus Black finish with silver graphics, chrome touring case mounts and cylinder protection bars, and round valve covers. This crated R100GS PD was acquired by the selling dealer from Blackfoot Motorsports in November 2021 and is now offered with a clean New York title.

    I rode up to Waterville Sunday to check out my nephew’s house remodel project. Coming along nicely.

    Wow! The bike bid is up to 41k. I don't know what my kidney will go for.

    What is this. No visible name. Pic has been sent to me and I'm supposed to guess, but I have no idea.

    I just found this on the Seattle Craig's List.

    You know you want it, a 1955 Ariel with a sidecar. And what a sidecar!

    Does need a little love, though. And I'm a little terrified about what that might be like at speed in a strong or gusty cross wind.

    https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/m...527136883.html

    1955 Ariel Motor bike and Sidecar - $4,777 (WOODINVILLE)

    Non running 1955 Ariel VB and covered 2 seat sidecar. The engine is 600 cc side valve, single cylinder, 4 speed. 51,188 miles. We drove the bike across country in 1979 and have parked it in various covered places ever since. I was always going to restore it, but now, with two new knees I can't kick it over.

    Even in 1979 it created quite a stir whenever we were out, and people were really intrigued and inquisitive.

    We are downsizing and cannot take it with us. Our loss, your gain.

    The bike is not registered in the States but I will come with you to the Licensing place or State Patrol to verify ownership and jump through whatever hoops are needed.

    I made an (hollow) 4130 axle for a Vincent w/aftermarket brakes last week
    Fussy, accurate thing...

    Mostly you don't have to worry about 10 divisions of 1 thousandth of an inch...
    As long as I'm getting paid for it I rather like it.
