I’ll bet for most buildings, the back door has an extra lock…
I’d hope they open in

For many of those pics, I'd like to react with:

The BAR formerly known as Skippy-2

These are a few of my favourite things...

Mine too!!!

I think 2101 lives down the street from me. He comes home about 2 in the morning.

Post 2100 looks like the Cocoa Beach Pier.

LOVE British bikes! I always wanted a Dunstall 850 Commando...

And a 750 Bonneville... BSA Gold Star... Manx Norton... Black Shadow... Brough Superior... Norvin cafe...

Etc...

those look like very small stands to keep those bikes upright and where's the absorbent pad to go under the motor?

I had a Fastback Commando once... for three days.

It was locked in an outside laundry and chained to a couple of large eyebolts concreted into the floor. Someone obviously wanted it badly, and seeing as only four people knew I had even bought it I suspected, and still do, it was one of them.

I have a long memory. I'll get the bike back. One day.

#2130, Norton Commander, is powered by a Wankel rotary engine. A guy I used to work with has one.

Another "Could have been a world beater" from England. There was also a race bike- 170 HP @ 11,500 rpm.

I had a big BSA patch on my jean jacket back in high school (gr 7 or 8).. I had to remove it as others joked & mocked the letters.. I was being called "Bullsh-t America" (Despite being Canadian in Canada, in Quebec..)

haters gonna hate I guess..

Ridiculous. Everyone knows it stands for "Bastards Stop Anywhere".

Sorry for the multiple photo's per post, but it seemed the best way.

The local Fire Department sponsored a car show today. Many nice rides.

It's a good thing I wasn't on one of those combat cycles today.
Please don't stand on bicycle paths during rush hour when there's a sidewalk literally next to it.
A water pistol would be fun though

Or an air horn.

Seriously considering a car horn. A normal bike "ding" for the decent morning walkers, and an obnoxious car horn for the obnoxious <insert your favorite insult here> just standing there looking away. And for cars and trucks who'd like to cut me off.

OK @SkyFire, can you tell us anything about this fantastic tiny E? It looks to be a beautiful early Series 1 copy, maybe even with the external bonnet latches.

I'm soooo jealous! Sending this pic to my father and brothers!

I know WHAT it is (at least I think I do), but cannot fathom the WHY! What's the purpose of a turntable with multiple tone arms, and why all the motor gadgetry??? Is it just to be weird and different?

@bronicabill :
Some of us asked the same thing. The reason why / the response was: so you can tune each tone arm for a particular record or music type. One tone arm can be set for 78rpm records, while another can be set for rock & roll records, etc..

Mind you, if you are that attuned to hearing that level / quality of the recording, you:
• have way too much \$ invested in speakers (but then again, look at the speaker stacks he's posted!)
• are likely named Fido or Rex or Spot..

Motor is isolated from the platter to reduce vibration. That little 10" LP is probably mono. A cartridge for mono, 78, cartridges with different compliances, maybe one for playing less than perfect vinyl so you don't ruin an expensive stylus. There's obviously some show involved, too.

I couldn't buy the drive belt, much less the rest!
