    This is the bike that got Mike Hailwood back into racing after his retirement to NZ in the mid 1970s.

    Wow .. Great assembly of motorcycle nostalgia. I like the innovative viewing window for the Ducati's towershaft.
    Kenny's dirt track two-stroke is a marvelous piece of history.
    Gosh, is that black 888 a Vincent powerplant?

    Yes, and no.
    It is a brand new Vincent engine manufactured by an Australian conpany called Irving Vincent who own the rights. They have a couple of solos and at least one chair that they regularly use to participate in this sort of event. If you go to their web site they apparently manufacture bikes to order but I have never seen any other than their own ones.
    If you search my Flickr stream there are plenty of photos of their bikes at various events.
