After last week’s post about mystery motorcycles I decided to follow up with more about the beautiful New Imperial v-twin ridden in this picture by Ginger Wood.
The 1969 Isle of Man TT was a race that took place in a time when 2-wheeled racing was dominated by the British marques Triumph, BSA and Norton.
This breathtaking 10 minute film shows Joey Dunlop completing a high-speed lap of the Isle of Man circuit in 1983 onboard his Honda V4 RS850R.
On close inspection, it looks as though it’s raining in the picture above, making the airborne nature of the bike all the more impressive.
This great photograph features Jimmy Guthrie at the 1933 Isle of Man TT, he’s push starting his Norton Model 40 and if you take a look into the background you’ll make out a Velocette and another Norton.
