    Just a small impression of what beauty could be seen in Raalte this year;

    Nice Emblem and Ner-a-Car..



    Henderson fours..



    daily riders..





    nice offers..



    interesting deals and parts..




    and this factory-racer who's owner is said to have refused the $1.5 M offer from the MoCo to buy it back for the Museum..

    Looking forward to the day when Americans are walking Euro meets with Radio Flyer wagons full of antique bike parts Probably won't happen though; Europeans put a lot more value on tradition, and history.

    In what way?
    Over here I notice many old classic or even vintage bikes are still being used on a regular basis..

    From the '70s thru the '90s, Europeans bought an enormous number of America bikes, and a staggering amount of parts. I can't blame them, as American bikes are the best looking, and most valuable motorcycles in the world; and it was American vendors that sold the bikes, and parts back then. . . Sour grapes? Not so much on my part as my prosperous days are behind me and I can't afford to pay the going prices. The Japanese, and Western Europeans love this stuff as much as anyone, and are good caretakers. I just miss the good old days of cheap Indians, and Harleys; and more supply than demand.

    About 15 years ago, here in Ohio, a German fellow rented an 18 wheeler here and bought up almost every HD in the area that was for sell at the time, both vintage and current.
