Went out for a little ride today to hang out with a bunch of Geezers and the old MC's. There was a meet and greet in the morning and most of the folks went up the mountain or ran around the local tasty back roads.
I stayed and hung with these guys while they tried to sort out the brakes on this 48 HRD. Thats the host showing us his better side, he has a couple of these and is trying to help out the new owner. After and hour or two they figured something internal was wrong on the right drum.

Pretty interesting system using a balance beam of sorts.

The owner had seven Nortons that I counted.

A couple of nice Triumps in back, four R90-S's and one R100-S

The Hack was updated with an R90 motor and twin Yamaha disk brakes.

I've always liked old Triples.

Fun day to get out and lot more MC's were there and most of them were rode there with a few trailer queens.

Dinner was provided, Ribs and a bunch of different salads.

For me I got a good ride in going both ways and enjoyed talking with the qeezers.

Thanks for the pics. I have a special fondness for the old brits, zener diodes, Whitworth threads, wrong side brakes and all. Back in the day I had a '67 and '71 Bonny. My 5'2" wife could ride the '67 but not the '71. The '71 was the first year of the double down tubes and it sat a little higher. Riding buddy had a '69 Tiger which was just a Bonny with 1 carb. Another riding bud had a 19?? Norton Commando. As Bob Hope would say "Thanks for the Memories".
