Deus at Camperdown ,Sydney held a V-Twin Festival on Saturday . It was a pretty laid back affair on a beautiful, crisp day . Great turnout of classic bikes -- restored and unrestored .

Motorcycle enthusiasts seem to have really got into the preservation of patina with quite a few "barn finds" on display- some road registered . I guess motorcycles are more easily concealed in barns and sheds than cars hence why so many discoveries continue to be made .I applaud the restraint of the finders who leave them in the "as found" condition . It must be very tempting to roll up your sleeves and start restoring them .

Two stand out bikes for me -- a Vincent and a Moto Guzzi ( both pictured) . Apparently the Guzzi was ridden up on Saturday morning 400kms from Braidwood -which would have been a cold and taxing ride.Leica X1 photos.
