Mr Joseph Lucas strikes again.

We were early up this morning.  Bikes loaded on the trailer the night before.  Sweden and “Rally på Dal” where the destination of or journey.
This was the first time I was going to ride the Sunbeam more than a few miles.

This nice 1929 Ariel A, 557ccm, was ridden by its second owner.

Never underestimate the importance of food……

An unplanned stop. No spark at the plug. It`s time to get dirty and sweaty…..Checking pick up and earth brush, but I can`t find anything wrong. After a while the magneto are working again. I am getting a bad feeling about this magneto………

Stop number two, my suspicions are right. The condenser has decided to call it a day. Yes, the fool on the hill was me, waiting for transport. A Ariel Square four are thundering past.

The magneto are going of tomorrow and it`s anchors away…..

Summer holiday?

According to Friar John in 1937, this is a good place for a motorcycle tour.

Snowy swap meet.

I had planned to sell a lot of parts and junk at the Ekeberg auto jumble. We went in on Friday evening to unload all the treasures and be ready for Saturday mornings happy byers and hoarders.
Can you imagine the surprise when we woke up to freezing slushy snow weather after sleeping rough? Auto jumbling is not an easy way to make money. I just managed to motivate myself to take a few photos.

No, this is not the crew from The Deadliest Catch show. It`s my friendly Nabors.

Rain gear are for kids and females……..Denim and a wool cap solve most weather problems.

An AJW with JAP engine and Sturmey-Archer gearbox brought in from a hard life.  Probably too late to rescue. I had no problem to restrain myself from buying it……….

The weather improved and this happy cat had made a lot of money to support his lifestyle.

Miss and Mister American Motorcycles Norway are admiring a friend’s bargain. But where is The Star-Spangled Banner? Are they changing to Union Jack and starting with right shifting bikes and joining the Limey boys?

Some cool Beezers at the BSAOC stand:

Wild hog.

I was out for a ride today and met this hog walking in the road. I am not sure, but I think it`s a flathead……
