Rare Bikes at the Time Warp this week

As everyone knows by now my favorite hangout is the Time Warp Tea Room on N Central Street in Knoxville. This past Tuesday, which is the "bike night" at the Time Warp had absolutely perfect weather, plus was the monthly meeting of the Time Warp Vintage Club. I can't remember a night that had a larger diversity of bikes. Starting with the Cagiva Grand Canyon above. You could say its the great grandfather of the Ducati Mulitstrada
 These didn't handle that great in the twisty stuff, but where hell on the dragstrip.
 Most people think Benelli only makes shotguns!

 Note the 2 Nitrous bottles mounted to the downtubes. The owner rode it down from the Kentucky state line
 The man who built this was a jeweler by profession. It shows.
 I didn't get to talk to the owner. It looks pretty funky,, but lots of work went into it.

 Yes. It's a Harley!
Yamaha built an Adventure Touring bike before anyone knew they wanted one. A bike that was built before its time. It would sell like hotcakes today.
I had one of these, and I want it back!
You can see stuff like this every Tuesday night at the Time Warp Tea Room. Come down, grab some grub, and take in the free show.
