We had a beautiful day for a show here in Evanston today. Sunny and 70's.

I like the CL &CB in the background,  those are the 2 bikes that put Honda on the map. Then the 750's came out and Honda WAS the map!

The sidecar rig is an R100S

Sorry Scott, no I didn't pay much attention to the info sheet on the bike (like mine it was entered in the show portion and so there was some info about the year and model)

Likely a Norton featherbed frame..
 A guy here built a NorKaw, stuffed a Z1 into a featherbed.

The nickle plating made me wonder, but after looking at pictures, it looks to be a Norton "feather bed" frame. From an article in Classic Bike magazine about how it got it's name:

"At the Isle of Man TT, the first round of the 1950 world championships, Norton took the first three places, with Irish ace Artie Bell ahead of young rising star Geoff Duke and TT veteran Harold Daniell. At the prize-giving, Daniell said the new chassis was so comfortable he could have fallen asleep: "It was like a feather bed"."

 Wow, I'd trade everything in my shop for a nice Vincent. Well, during race season when the Dragster isn't in there.
