As a continuation of my post from last week I am posting up the other pictures I took of Bob Lanphere's Vintage Motorcycle Collection.
He has them displayed throughout his motorcycle showroom on both the first and second floor. According to the website he has been collecting over 40 years and the collection includes 150 motorcycles.
Some of the bikes were back lit by the sun so I didn't take pictures of them at all, but here are the few I did take.
|(1987 Wood-Rotax Flat Tracker)|
|(1975 Yamaha Flat Tracker and a 1965 CZ 250)|
|(1980 Honda CR125 R Elsinore)|
|(1971 Griuph "Greeves Frame/500 cc Triumph" and a 1970 Greeves Griffon MX)|
|(Unknown Honda on the left and a 1995 Honda Cub on the right)|
|(1976 Yamaha IT 400)|
|(1958 BSA Spitfire Scrambler and a 1956 BSA Road Rocker A10)|
The BSAs were on an elevated platform on the showroom floor so one could actually get a good look at them. The others are all up quite high. He also has a two old Honda cars, Civics perhaps. Bob Lanphere also owns a pretty large Honda automotive dealership in Beaverton.

That is it. We wandered around for the better part of an hour. Sitting on this new bike and that new bike. All in all it was a pretty good day out, if you don't count traffic and people.
Oh, and have I mentioned our daffodils and crocuses (croci) are blooming? Even the trees have decided it is time to bloom.

Spring is just around the corner.
