My second hobby is motorbikes. My 3third hobby is to collect of old photos and postcards of transport vehicles especially motorcycles, so if you have some, do not hesitate to send me an mail from the front of my homepage, thanks.
My first bike was a NSU Consul 500 ccm from 1953 at DKK 300.00 running. The next was an Indian Big Chief 1200 ccm from 1947 for which I paid the incredible amount of DKK 900.00 and it was running. One of my friends from the old Harley-club owns it today. However he finds it hard to ride it in a decent way. Once in a while he things it is a racer (here.. Greger, take that) no - joking apart he treats the old lady very well. Later I have ridden several of English bikes such as Triumph, AJS, Matchless, Norton and even a Nimbus. My first Harley I got in 1977, it was a WLC from 1942 for which I paid DKR 3.500 running. I painted an rebuilt it and 2 years later I sold it for DKR 32.000 this was the right time to sell as the prices were increasing.
Later on I have purchased several of Harleys, I have had 10-15 I guess among those also a FLH which I rebuilt to a full dresser (a hot-dog stand). During the 80's I also had a chopped pan-shovel (steel pan head 1951 and motor shovel 1977). Later on I caught interest for old machines and bought myself a Harley Flying Twin 750 ccm from 1932 with the original sidecar (Golding). At the same time I was looking for a 1200 ccm Harley, those were not easy to get, however finally I succeeded In 1980 I became member of the old Harley club (HDK of 1930, and HDCDK (Harley Davidson club Denmark) and a few years later I became member of DVM (Danish Veteran Motorcycle club)
At the moment I have a 1200 ccm Harley Davidson Model VC from 1931. Considering that in 1931 only 426 pcs. Were manufactured all over the world, you can imaging that this one is not easily achieved - of course if you are willing to pay off all can be achieved, but since everyone want to bye cheap and sell dearly - at least I do. However if anybody know from where I can achieve a typical for 1931 or rather a Golding sidecar or frame, please send me a mail, as the sidecar I have for now does not fit the right period
I also have an Mw/K 750 military bike, which has run in the Polish aircraft. It is supplied with reverse gear operated by a handle at the fender there also is direct drive at the sidecar. Please note the picture at my welcome page.
Then I have a Service car (also for sale) that is a 3 wheeler Harley Davidson, not quite finished as it has not been assembled, but motor and gearbox are rebuild, this one also with reverse gear.
Further more I have an M72 with sidecar from 1957, an Ural 1989 also with sidecar and reverse gear, so obviously I have a from sidecar freak, and I also have a DKW from 1953 assembled, but could need a hand.Finally I have a BMW R20 from 1936 with engine rebuild and fender, frame, shields and wheels are fixed and painted.
