One thought on “Ride away on classic motorcycles

  1. On the “unrestored” M20 the pic says the only thing “unrestored” is the fuel tank and missing knee pads. The patina on the guards and tool box looks very suss not to mention a whole heap of other unrestored anomalies incl the best 80 year old wire spoked wheels ever seen !
    Cheers
