    Watched all of this at max volume, what a noise. Old bikes rock. Lots of singles, Kwak trip, Honda multi etc. Fly bys start at 4 odd minutes but I loved all of it. Can never remember how to embed.

    Anyone know what that is at 4.14? Engine looked a bit complicated, supercharger?

    I'm no expert, but it looked like a Norton twin, pre-commando period - Dominator or Atlas? Nice and low in the frame.

    It's a pre-unit (late 50s-early 60s) T120 Bonneville motor- didn't see any evidence of a supercharger anywhere though- did you mean 4:14 mins in?

    Fantastic! Really enjoyed listening to what they used to sound like. Reminds me of the 10/10 at midnight before we all went for a ride out. Loved the smokers.

    I might record it to play in the garage.

    Embed.

    Easy. Insert link into film icon and then delete the ‘s’ from the https.

    Yeah 4 mins 14 secs. I got thrown by the fact there was 1 cylinder with a pipe, then above it another one but that looked like it was attached to a second cylinder at the top. Just looked odd to me, probably perfectly normal.
