4th Annual Tucson Vintage/Classic Motorcycle Show - Part I

Last Sunday Tuyen and I took a little ride down to the 4th Annual Tucson Vintage Bike show.  Seems to get bigger each year.  It's held at the Barrio Brewing Company downtown.  I just wanted to share some of my pictures.  Not going to give a lot of commentary.  Just enjoy the eye candy!

Quick shot after getting off the bike.  It's like being a kid in the parking lot of Disneyland.  Gotta go see...gotta go see!
I've always been a big fan of the Royal Enfield's.  I looked at getting one before deciding on the Bonnie.  They're sweet looking rides.
Notice how the crash guard has some sort of wind screen with a hole cut out for the exhaust.  Kind of defeats the purpose of air cool.  Also, right side shifter.  That would mess me up in so many ways.
Mid 90's Triumph Trophy?
I thought the tank badge looked like a Triumph badge flipped upside down. Minus the knee pad.
 Definitely the same, if not more people since last year.  Quite a few more classic bikes and less modern ones parked on the street.
 Best looking bike at the show in my opinion.  1958 BMW R60 w/Geko Sidecar.
Fat front tire always looks mean!
Second best looking bike at the show IMO.  Do I have a secret desire for sidecars??
A lot of interest in this bike.  A Ural M70 Solo 2012.  Supposedly one of ten made.  Don't know much about it.

I will own a vintage headlight.  It's only a matter of time.
1974 R90S.  Can you find the hidden camera?
 Nice collection of vintage Indians.
I believe this was a 1917 Powerplus? Indian
1927 BSA 500cc.
Honda CBR 1000F.   Looks fast just standing still.
 If this bike had a soundtrack it would be "I'm too Sexy"
 If this bike had a soundtrack it would be "Funky Town"
Tuyen checking out a hot BMW.  Who's the guy rocking the pipe?  Don't see that too often these days.
More pictures tomorrow.


  1. Eye candy indeed. Lots of great pics in that post. I too like the sidecars but my favorite pic is the BSA headlight that has a slight reflection of you in it.

  2. @Trobairitz - That was one of my favorites as well! I tried for another headlamp shot in the next set of photos.
