Aussie flashbacks

September 28, 2010

My photos from my trip to Australia have been in storage for some time, but last week I took them out of the storage unit and can now post some of the good ones that I didn’t have time to see and post while I was “on the road.”

Replica vintage BMW motorcycle

September 23, 2010

This new motorcycle, which we saw at Motorcars of Hollywood, on Lincoln Blvd., in Marina del Rey, is made in China and is a licensed reproduction of a post war BMW motorcycle.  According to William Byrd, the reproductions are still being made under a post war agreement and this one is for sale.


We took more photos of other vehicles there and will try to post them over the weekend.
