Rhinebeck Antique Motorcycle Show

I saw antique motorcycles this weekend. A lot of them. I took some photos.


Gallery: Rhinebeck Antique Motorcycle Show

What more do you need to know? Here are a few annotated selections, with the rest (44 total) at the gallery link above:

Some people clearly specialized in a marque, whether shiny BMWs or not-so-shiny Honda Trail 90s.

Bikes ranged from the sublime to the hideous. Bidders on $25,000 restored machines would be elbow to elbow with people peddling heaps.

Shiny chrome tanks are shiny. True story.

The thing about Triumph is that it's hard to tell sometimes whether the bike you're looking at is old or new--they all look the same except for the details such as FI, catalysts. This one was old.

Motorcycles truly grew up from motorized bicycles, and there were plenty of examples demonstrating this lineage.

A WWII-era Harley-Davidson complete with rifle holster up front. The owner still rides it daily, as evidenced by the many bugs splattered across the windscreen!

Honda beach trikes, sadly removed from our markets after product liability concerns proved too great.

A pretty-looking Indian 4, back from the 1920s, I believe, and already with a a longitudinally-mounted inline-4. Heady stuff.

One of the weirdest bikes I saw, straight out of the Jetsons and strangely reminscent of a Hupmobile. I have no idea what it is. Any help?

Not a speck of rust to be found on these gleaming Bavarian machines.

Finally, the very odd Morgan 3-wheeler.
