A Fine Collection - New Additions 13/10/12
« on: August 23, 2012, 06:57:05 pm »
Some of those from PE might know Alan Lewis(bikealanpe), and the nice collection of bikes and stuff he has. I visit now and again, and like spending time around the bikes. Today I got permission to fotograph and show it off for you a bit.

A Vespa putt-around and another Airhead CR in the making in the background

Mini bike

And a couple of monkey bikes

A few open shots. Would have loved to have a wider angle camera. Its a bit tight in there for really nice pics. My first bike is like the ss50 in the last pic.  :biggrin:

Note the nice collection of models

Some race bikes. The first one, a 250, was owned and raced by the late Johan Boshoff

I showed my wife that magnificent collection and suggested that I need more Airheads...  :mwink:


She doesn't agree.  >:(

The remarkable thing about this collection is that just a few of them are restored... the rest are pristine originals.

My first bike was a Honda C110 50cc, like the red and blue ones next to the Bimota. I gave it to Simon Fourie many years ago. He used to display it on his pool table.
