British vintage motorcycles.

To the outsider looking in America looks awash with glorious sunsets and harley/triumph choppers, laden with beer and babes riding to massive bike party's. Well here in Blighty it's a bit different. Drizzle, erm.. a bit more drizzle. You get the picture. But.. the variety of bikes from the heyday of British motorcycle manufacture is the stuff that makes anything else pail into insignificance. Look at these ancient grids, some amazing engineering on these old beuty's. These things have been there and survived throught all kinds of historical event's. I saw all these and lots more at Andy Tiernans. Is this a 1920's 8hp Enfield?
 This looks like the majestic Matchless Model X

1930 AJS 350cc big port

 1927 Triumph Model QN 500cc side valve.
