It was test-run after completion, then drained of fluids and displayed at many concours event, winning numerous Best in Show and Best in Class awards over the years.

Vehicle: 1954 BSA C10L 250cc Sidevalve

Owner: Dave Destler

Location: Canoga Park, CA

Details: Extremely sympathetic restoration to original considering the model's rather pedestrian provenance and market value. A labour of love by someone that I happened upon and acquired for my collection. I had the engine and gearbox stripped and refreshed with new gaskets, top end rings, etc., as it weeped a bit of oil when ridden and the compression was slightly down. Now starts first kick and runs like a British watch!?

Original down to the every component, sheet metal part, carburettor, control, ignition key, etc.

Vehicle: 1950 Sunbeam S7 Deluxe

Owner: Dave Destler

Location: Canoga Park, CA

Details: A completely restored, original example of the low-production Sunbeam S7 Deluxe, which might have been BSA's postwar range-topper, as they bought the Sunbeam marque and hoped to have this be the new BSA. They went with the parallel twin A7 500 (and A10 650) instead, and the inline twin 500cc Sunbeam was a standalone marque under the BSA umbrella.

As a rubber-mounted 500cc inline OHC twin with shaft drive and styled after the BMW R75, it was ahead of its time in many ways. Available in either Mist Green or Black, the green was the definitive colour for this machine and establishes it as one of history's unmistakable classics.

Shows in 2019:

All British Ride, Hansen Dam (1000 motorcycles): People's Choice

The Californian Concours, Santa Anita Park: Best in Show

Vehicle: 1968 BMW R-69S

Owner: Somer Hooker

Location: Nashville ,TN. area.

Details: A friend acquired this bike in the early 80's. After that time it changed hands 3 times, always among people I knew. Finally one guy got it and wanted to repaint it white. Being into preservation, I was horrified as this had such nice original paint. I went out and found him one in white that was over restored. I've had numerous old BMWs over the years and had some nice accessoires on the shelf. They were installed on this as a "Gentleman's Sport Tourer" so to speak. The quarter fairing is known as a Renne fairing. It is aluminum. The mufflers are Hoske; a popular German accessory manufacturer. The saddle bags are by Bowman. Bowman was a popular aftermarket accessory manufacturer in California. Only one other set has ever surfaced. The bike is a triple matching number bike and rthe rims are OEM BMW.

Vehicle: 1958 Zundapp R203 Bella Scooter

Owner: Patty Schwarze 

Location: De Leon Springs,  FL

Details: German manufacturer Zündapp made scooters from 1953 to 1964. Approximately 130,000 Bella scooters were sold with one of two engine sizes:  150cc or 198cc. This bike has a single cylinder, 198cc two stroke motor, four speeds and is capable of speeds up to 58mph. 

The 12-inch cast aluminum wheels and Earles-type leading link fork, with a shock absorber on the left side, made for a much smooter ride than many other popular scooters of the time. The scooter came equipped with electric start, powered by two 6 V batteries.  Passenger foot rests hinge up, into the body of the bike, when not in use.

This bike was restored to its orignal metalic blue here in the US after being imported from Sweden.
