My mate is buying a 1923 Elliott Payneham, a real old bit of gear. He sent me this pic the other day and I dig it. Sums up those early days of bike riding, basic as, chopped down, exploring the realms of speed that are easily obtainable these days.

POST YOUR PICS of really old gear. Twenties, thirties, preferably "race" type bikes etc.

TP.

oil pump...could you imagine running around a board track at 120 having to pump on your oil tank in the straights.

Magic. Keep em coming!

I'll get a few this weekend as well when my mate goes to pick his bike up.

What is the Red one? tough looking machine. I love the old tech too, like the huge strokes!

Cool, keep em coming.

I also met a bloke building a 1932 works Norton as well a while ago, although it was in lots of boxes. One of 12 built, like this one:
