BMW r80 Indira by Ton-up Garage

.








Pictures by Ton-up Garage crew

Indira it’s a contrast between Ton-up Garage latest BMW “Recall” and this one. The Recall was a motorcycle where they wanted to keep all the BMW identity. In this case, Indira has a completely new identity. Indira reflects pure beauty and they wanted to build a motorcycle with a new identity design but that was able to kept purity in the lines and shapes. This was an UK BMW R80 RT commuting motorcycle. It was ordered from a French client, who lives in the UK (London) and wanted to have a dark colored and with a low profile BMW motorcycle. They managed to convince him to not have a motorcycle fully painted in black. The motorcycle was supposed to be ridden in the city of London as his commuting bike, so at least some comfort was needed for this goal.

1966 Matchless for sale

.








1966 Matchless 750 Motorcycle Model G15 All Original. The launch of the 750 hybrid onto the home market waited until the appearance of the Matchless G15 Mk2 in 1964. Before you ask, the reason for the 'Mk2' designation is that there had been a short-lived G15 Matchless in 1962-63, which had been propelled by an overstretched AMC twin engine, developed from the 650cc G12. Although this earlier machine allowed AMC to list a 750 in their Matchless range, it needed to be so softly tuned to avoid disaster that it was little, if at all, faster than the G12. Hence the G15 Mk2. See more Here

Where Cars Go to Die by Dieter Klein

.







Where do cars go when their driving days are done? Many are crushed or recycled, but others are left out in nature to decay and crumble. It’s not the most efficient—or environmentally sound—method of disposal, but for Cologne, Germany–based photographer Dieter Klein, it’s the most magical. By Jordan G. Teicher via slate.com

Octogenarian saddles up for 10,000-kilometre motorcycle adventure

.

Gill Yarrow is hopping aboard his Norton Commander in July to ride to the International Norton Owners Association rally in North Carolina. Age is, the saying goes, just a number, and for octogenarian Gil Yarrow, the only numbers he really concerns himself with are the ones in front of cc’s (as in cubic centimetres). Digits likes 850, 900 and 1,100 are what keep the 83-year-old Port Coquitlam man young at heart.
