Put up by the 'West of England steam engine society' during one of their runs.
Nostalgia in spades - as a school-boy in the late 50s & early 60s in Allahabad (Prayagraj now!) we would come across steam road rollers & were totally captivated.



Another video on a topic close to my soul! - Old and geriatric diesel engines starting up after decades.

Starting up old & ancient tractors:



Another video about an iconic and grand old veteran - starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

This video too may have been posted earlier & if so mods, please accept apologies in advance! For railway aficionados this could be interesting.

There is nothing weird or funny about the following video, but I don't know where else to post it, so here it is. Mods, kindly delete it, if this thread is inappropriate for the video (or if it has been posted elsewhere before).

I find videos of manufacturing processes engrossing. Particularly if the product is as iconic as the BMW motorcycle, and I hope other members here (who are gearheads like me!) will be likewise fascinated.

This is the 'art' of straightening up a toppled vehicle when the vehicle is suicidal!

I wonder whether this dog was actually riding the bike or just holding the handlebars while it was cruising!
Anyway it seems to have impressed people as per this news item!!
