  • A tragedy for 2 wheeler fans

    Reported in our morning paper this am:

    <<A huge fire at Britain's National Motorcycle Museum has destroyed 650 bikes and caused damage estimated at 8 million pounds.
    The museum holds about 900 of the world's fastest and most expensive vintage motorbikes. Only 250 were saved. The cause of the fire was a mystery.>>

    Probably lucas "Lord of darkness" demons at work?

    I used to know a brit rider that carried a flashlight and duct tape thou.

    Anyplace with stored gasoline vehicles is subject to erupt in flames.

    I sat this dirty towel on fire in my shop last week, smoked the whole place up. The cutting torch caught it up from 30 feet away.

      I don't build or ride bikes like some on this list, but a few years back I went to the Guggenhiem in NYC to see the motorcycle show. Wow! what a history lesson in technology, and what Art! Sorry that the fire happened, hopefully some of the talented builders in GB and US can rebuild or salvage what is left.
