    This is my current motorcycle. It combines the style of the 50's with a modern power plant. It's a 2016 Indian Chief Vintage and has 18,000 miles on the clock.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  3. We have quite a few motorcycle threads that deal with this topic. Do we need another one?

  5. Yes there are many photos of our bikes on the original thread that was started a few years ago. Really don't need a new one.

  8. That's a really nice looking bike. Do you reenact and show it at events? Or take it on a run to Hunstanton on bank holidays. Either way it's a nice bike to ride for a day out, so thanks for posting a photo.

    Hi Mr G,
    My wife and i do attend 1940's events as either civilians or me as ARP and her Womens Land Army but this bike at 1967 is 22 years too new ! Though i do fancy getting a WW2 era bike.
    I generally use it to go to town or to quaint old villages with nice pubs to stop in. I ride in a military Barbour suit and open face helmet but have thought about digging my old issed DPM kit out and attending a few vintage bike rallies.
    I tend to avoid Sunny Hunny as it gets full of bikers on modern bikes trying to go there as fast as they can. Sadly there are no vintage Brit bike clubs near me.
    Glad you like the bike

    I apologize for the poor photos, taken many years ago. My current bike is an '09 Heritage classic, along with the '78 Shovel head, a project bike. Also have had the '05 Softail standard. Also photos of my '47 Chief.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  11. With no bike clubs near, that's a shame, I do know what you mean about the modern bikes and speed, I only see vintage cars when I visit and lots of new bikes.

    You would not look out of place at the Aces cafe on the north circular though!

    You need to post a photo of said military Barbour gear and bike.

    I've had plenty of modern bikes and toured far and wide on them but the old Beaser give me the biggest smiles and i can do 100% of the maintenance and 80% of any fixing myself.
    I was out on it today. Next time i'll get the missus to take a pick
    Merry Christmas to you and all FL-ers
