feast for the eyes...


AHRMA vintage moto race and swap meet..

we love corsa motoclassica and look forward to it every year!

ウィロー・スプリングスのスピードウェイで開催される、毎年楽しみにしているコルサ・モトクラシカ。

started with the swap meet, of course.

まずはスワップミートを偵察。

 '73 greeves

グリーブスという英車。私は初めて見た。

nice to see you again, mr. Hickson!

デアスの単気筒の集まりで会ったレジェンドTTレーサーのゲリー・ヒクソン氏に再会!


we found fellow cannonballer DK on the ground, sold for $3!!

すっごく知ってる人(キャノンボーラーDK氏)が地面に並べられてるのを発見してどっきり!!しかも3ドルで売られていた・・・

and we were included in the price :)

そして、その3ドルにはチーム80番も含まれていた。3セント分。

 niimie would love this booth!

N美氏が好きそうなもの満載のブース発見!
 
we bumped into motorcycle designer Miguel Galluzzi. shinya was showing off his findings :)

オートバイのデザイナー、ミゲル・ガルーツイ氏にばったり。発掘品を自慢する木村氏。

 suzuki GT550






















we decided to watch the race from the other side of the track and found this wrecking yard-ish spot back there.

反対側からレースを観ようと裏を周って行ったら、隠れレッキング・ヤードみたいなの発見。フォードが多かった。






 spectator 1

観戦する人、その1

spectator 2 and his TT500

観戦する人、その2・・・とその2のTT500。

"Greeves Motorcycles Ltd is a British motorcycle manufacturer producing motorcycles mainly for the trials and off-road market. Owner Richard Deal bought the rights to the Greeves name in May 1999. The original company had been producing motorcycles since 1952, funded by a contract with the Ministry of Pensions for their Invacar, a three-wheeler for disabled drivers. After many wins in motorcycle trials competitions and developing a successful US export market, the original company ceased trading following a fire in 1977. The new company continues to develop motorcycles and launched the first new Greeves Trials Bike for 20 years in January 2009, with an innovative all-new British two-stroke 280 cc engine."
