Vahon Is, WA vintage run that was - Hey Jim P.!

Tried to post some pics but will have to figure that out a bit later.

anyway.

Every year around this time there is a vintage rally on Vashon Island, WA.
You need to take the ferry to get there.
Lots of old orig. bikes, restored bikes, new bikes and scooters too. Met some guys that rode up from Calif.
Then there is poker run and events or you can just do the 40mi.ish run around the island. Its kinda low key and the date is not usually advertised for various reasons but the word does get out. I didn't mention the date did I....

a bit more here.

I did see some old Goldwings!..


But Hey Jim Palmer should have gotten your #.
He owns a restored red 450 honda and is working on a 1100 if anybody.. PM me if you get this.

Love that CB750 chopper and the CB72 sitting at the curb. And that GL1100 apocalypse bike is pretty original.

Why ain't we ridin'?

GL1100 apocalypse bike
that about sums it up!

That 750 had about 5-6 guys standing over it gawking while the owner talked story re: the build.
25k into all together.
5k into the motor
4k for paint. 20 coats. It was immaculate!

no shocks on the bike. had mini billet alum. looking shocks under the seat.
retired aircraft mechanic. He knew the bike inside and out for sure but sounded like he had a lot of the work done by others
