A friend saw 2 BSA singles on 2 occassions in 2 days in Bombay last week. Strange coincidence.

Compared to European bikes I find US bikes became rather gross and were only suited to travelling in a straight line for a long time, the early ones are nice though.
Hi Julian,

I have never seen my sentiments about HDs et al being expressed so eloquently.

I just had to express my appreciation here.

Also I am an admirer of your work with Vintage Bikes.

Best Regards

Ram

Here are some bikes that had attended a great motorcyle-only event at Pune in 2002. Many entries had come all the way from Hyderabad.

Karlosdeville, how do you guys maintain such beauties. My uncle owns a Matchess 500 in Pondy. He told me to take the bike to Pune. The bike needs a lot of repair. Do you know any mech who services Brits in Pune???

Leepower,
There's Mr. Arun Mane on Tilak Road. Very senior man who knows his stuff. He handles a lot of Jawas and Yezdis, including mine, and has done a few classic BMWs very well indeed, so I'm sure he'd be more than capable with a Matchless. i think I've mentioned him to you before. Gimme a call if you need details.

Cheers
Rahul

Hi Rahul,
I've been to Mr. Mane's place several times. He is currently restoring a BMW single cylinder, i forgot the model name. But i think he mentioned once about restoring Norton / Matchless. Cant recall it now.
