This the best looking Fury I have seen till now. If these had better brakes, they would have been hit.

That is trully an awesome collection of vintage bikes. The passion for two wheelers of powertwin is evident in the condition of these great bikes!

Hats off to you powertwin!

The bikes featured in the show is only a few, I request powertwin to post all his collection in this thread. He has got a treasure mine (his garage). Man one should visit to believe me.

I had the similar experience of seeing Tajmahal first time, yeah such a beautiful and distinct collection of vintage bikes.
