Knobbys Nuggets

1907 Indian Camelback

Ahh , the original Moped. This one lives at Transport World in Invercargill NZ and was snapped by McSnotty using his incredibly complex camera with LTTH (look through this hole) and PTB  (press this button) technology to help produce these lovely photos. There’s some history also available at the link from Transport World

19xx Junior??

This was spotted at the Hayes motorcycle collection. Its amazing what you can turn out with what looks like parts of an old BMX, an ancient stinkwheel motor, some tube and , as McSnotty would say “a bit of electric glue” (welder).

1924 AJS 2 3/4 Model B

As I said when I created the Nuggets section, sometimes there’s photos just lying around on your PC , that have no particular context. Here’s a couple i re-discovered from, what my sketchy memory is telling, the Far North Vintage Car Club Autospectacular from back in 2010.

1916 Thor Model U

These Thor photos were captured by McSnotty and the resurrection his Kodak Instamatic from yesteryear. A handsome beast we both agree and whats caught his eye is the unabashed and liberal use of the eye-popping colour (or eye gouging depending on taste).
