  • Great photo of him sitting on a Triumph and a Honda Dream sitting behind him. PLUS, a (looks like) Dodge Sweptline Crew Cab pickup behind that! Coca Cola machine inside... lots of cool stuff! I'm sure some Triumph "guy" could figure out what year he is next too.

      I mentioned that pick up truck in front of Mr. Myers house with a different crated new motorcycle in it everyday? I am certain that is the truck and yes a crew cab. They must have let the designer from the 64 Coronet make a contribution and he so loved his C post design that he offered that B post modification on the crew cab.

        Well kind of weird in the vintage sense, the image is not exactly vintage but the subject, eleven 1975 Norton Interstates found after owner dies. The Nortons were unpacked from the original manufacturer's shipping containers in a Belgium basement. Any lover of vintage motorcycles knows about this but I thought I'd offer an opportunity to see this again. If I were one of Pavlovs' canine subjects I'd be drooling without the bell. This is the stuff of daydreams - a picker's Holliday.

            HaHa - indeed. It doesn't look like even a good hour of work. I talked to a guy at the Chesapeake AMCA Meet a few years back. He was a Harley Dealer in Western New York State and he had taken his loss on the not so well received Harley Davidson 1977 XLCR and storing "many" away as he had received them from the factory. Many dealers cut their losses or maybe just modified them to make traditional Sportsters (of course by the VIN they were still XLCRs). Many of these dealers I am told disposed of the removed parts in the dumpster. So at the Chesapeake Meet he brought out of of several of these completely original (movement miles only) XLCRs to be judged. Off course these were all awarded 100 points and are now among the Winners' Circle. Not sure what he ended up doing with them. Here is the one I saw - https://youtu.be/cA4L74DZ3WM

            • Nothing wrong with an XLCR.... I like them. Never owned one... but still I think that it's a nice looking machine. It's funny how the "customers" will look at "something" and think they are ugly and sales are bad. Something like a 1970 Plymouth Superbird or Dodge Daytona with the wings. Dealers were removing the nose and wings and making them into regular Roadrunners and Chargers. HAHA!! IF we only knew...

                  • Well that is not quite what I wanted. How do you post without getting 3 pictures?

                        Jerry - Yes the multiple image problem is something I have as well. I find that in edit mode you can see the thumb prints of what is in the post. I just go back and remove the extras leaving the one I want in the order the images should appear. I think I need to spend some time in the Practice Post forum. I still haven't found where I can go back to all my impages posted and reuse an image I have used before. I know Tom Cotten expressed that as well.

                          This appears to be an early Indian Dispatch - Tow - can anyone comment on the year? Also if you know these machines Member Ken has a post in the Parking Lot Chatter looking for some help with regard to how the 1939 Dispatch - Tow stows the tow bar when not in use. Thanks

                              I like the posts of motorcycles that work.
