Chicago ACE Garage bike show

This afternoon the ACE garage held a small bike show for the older motos; british, japanese, german and italian were all well represented. I went to ogle the Triumph thought. A good selection to look at too! Here’s a cafe’d ’72 Bonnie, nicely done.

 A line of decades… from the 60’s to the 2000’s all there! lovely to the eyes.

One of my favourites: the modern Thruxton 900.

A Hurricane: the Vetter added parts to make the triple sportier to compete with Japanese 4’s of the time, the tripe pipes are superb. This one was for sale ($?).

Hard tail bobber of an OIF, tough riding stance with ape hangers too! Though a clean neat bike.

Other marques also attending included this nice red BSA 650; cousin to my ’72 Bonnie, also oil in frame. I liked the chrome front mudguard which would fit my bike no problem.

A pair of Ducatis in Paul Smart livery, gladly seein’ double!
But one of the nicest things was this diminutive 250 Aprilla, fresh blue racebike with greyhound icon.

A hare or hound?

 Great shot of young lady enjoying the speedy thrills of an old farm bike; in this case a Triumph.
