Royal Enfield Battle Green 500 single
One of my mates is buying this model and I’ve been promised a test-ride.
The Classic Battle Green comes to you with a paint scheme reminiscent of the War era, a time when Royal Enfield motorcycles proved their capabilities and battle worthiness by impeccable service to soldiers. Donning a younger look with styling cues one would expect only from a genuine Royal Enfield: single cylinder air-cooled pushrod engine, 1950s style nacelle and toolboxes, traditional paint scheme and buffed engine components, this motorcycle is all set to bring you the pleasures of modern motorcycling while reflecting the aura of classic eternal styling.

Willy from Carson City, Nevada, United States made available these photos of his great classic
1949 Harley WL Flathead Bobber.
Willy: “I seen yer page on the net today and thought I’d share a couple of pics of my 1949 WL. I bought this thing back in December 2007 as a runnin’ basket case and tore it all apart and started over. She may not be the hottest thing on two wheels but I’m furly proud of my work.”
Well, Willy, you sure can be proud. She’s just beautiful. I don’t know many guys who wouldn’t like to take your Bobber for a ride up and down the strip!
Flat track is an unusual form of motorcycle racing that involves a short dirt track, lots of sliding, and lots of crashing. But many world-class road racers have gotten their start here, and even superstars like Rossi and Marquez are now adding flat track into their training. So why is this little-known kind of racing the birthplace of so many racing champions?
