1948 Vincent Black Shadow Motorcycle - Olympus Stylus Tough TG-4

1948 Vincent Black Shadow Motorcycle

I think this is one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever made.   It has a 998 cc (60.9 cu in) 50 degree 7.3:1 OHV 55 bhp engine that is a stressed frame member.   Fewer than 1700 hand assembled Black Shadows were manuafactured.

Ariel Square Four Mark II – Pentax 67II – Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 55mm F/3.5 – TMAX 100

Ariel Square Four Mark II - Pentax 67II - Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 55mm F/3.5 - TMAX 100

Ariel Square Four Mark II
Culver City, Los Angeles County, California

Daniel J. Winter’s 997cc Ariel Square Four Mk II is one of 3828 produced between 1953 and 1958.   He told me he bought it from a friends grandfather.   My guess from the styling is this bike was customized in the early 1970s.

This photo is the first of a series of this bike.

When I was a starving student in my early twenties the Ariel Square Four was one of two types of vintage bikes I wished I could afford.   The other was a Vincent Black Shadow

Royal Enfield Classic 500 Motorcycle – Olympus Wide-S (Wide Super) – TMAX 100

Royal Enfield Classic 500 Motorcycle - Olympus Wide-S (Wide Super) - TMAX 100

Royal Enfield Classic 500 Motorcycle
2014 Culver City Car Show
Culver City, Los Angeles County, California

Enfield India began manufacturing motorcycles in 1957 using parts made in England.   By 1962 the Indian motorcycles used all domestic components made with tooling that was transferred from England.   The last British manufactured Royal Enfield motorcycle was made in 1967.

Rights to Royal Enfield name were acquired by the Indian company Eicher Motors Limited in 1995 soon after they bought Enfield India.

I did not take note but I assume this paid space at the 2014 Culver City Car Show was bought be the local Royal Enfield dealer in Marina del Rey.
