Biker's classic Spa-Franchorchamps

Post  wannabe caferacer on Mon 22 Jun - 21:01

For many years i go to the Biker's classic to watch classic race bikes and café racers and above all to hear them racing on the circuit. Here's a little photo impression:

Back in the seventies there were lots of bikes with this kind of special paint but now there are not many left. And the sound coming out of those pipes was even more beautifull


A masterpiece of Egli

Home made brew, a bike with an Renault car engine and it didn't look too bad

Bill ivy's Jawa racer


Guzzi four from the fifty's. The exhaust pipes don't look very big but the noise is unbelievable

And now for some inspiration for café seats from MV Agusta affraid



And on the saturday evening there was the first part of the 4 hours of Spa, an endurance race with classic bikes from the seventies

3 classics made for racing: Laverda SFC, Moto Guzzi Lemans 1, Honda CR





Those guys were really racing with the old beasts

I love it when they 'sprint' to the bikes , they must prepare a longer strip to sprint that way we can see who's in shape and who's not.
