Motorcycle Show: Vintage Bikes!

I must confess for an attraction to vintage motorcycles.  Certainly the technology and "ride" is a lot more comfortable today.  But, these bikes were just the start of an era.   And, you can see

You are looking at a Peugeot, 1952, 176 TC4.   This bike served in the French army (Algeria) from 1954-1962, when it was returned to France and painted green.  It was "discharged" from the army in 1970 where it then went into a private collection and placed into a museum.

The museum went bankrupt and the bike was put on the open market where it was purchased and shipped to Minnesota.

And, here it is. 

This is just cool.
