My hat is off to your buddy, it's a labour of love to maintain one old Brit. bike let alone a garage full. They look better than showroom condition too. I love the 441 Victor. Do you know if he brings any of them to British/European motorcycle day in Clarksburg?

From a dealer expo they had a few weeks ago. Can't speak to the reliability but they look awesome

Wow. This is my dream garage. That Royal Enfield is a rare sight. He must be quite the mechanic to maintain all of those old bikes and keep them in riding condition.

Not sure if he does or not, I could check. I know he will occasionally enter one into a show.

He's very meticulous which helps but this really is his passion. The Royal Enfield is actually the only modern bike. (Don't remember what year. It's electric/kick start and has been set up to mimic the old bike. That's the only one I've ridden other than his 1972 HD Sportster. The Enfield was cool but a bitch to ride. All of these bikes including the HD, have the shifter on the right which I'm somewhat used to. (I used to have a 1970 XLCH Sportster)
The Enfield shift pattern is one up, three down. Had to constantly think of which gear I was in and what gear I wanted to be in next. Confusing as hell.

First thing I noticed, "The Sex Symbol Of Motorcycling" I think they called it.
