Hosted by the Southern California Norton Owners Club, the Hansen Dam Rally is one of the largest classic British motorcycle events in the US. It’s an excellent opportunity to check out some classic Britbikes and talk shop with their owners, so that’s what I did yesterday. In no particular order, here are my favorite photos from Sunday:

When I saw this bike, I noticed Jay Leno’s helmet and jacket…

…sure enough, I saw him just a couple of bikes over.

There were plenty of interesting non-Brit bikes, as well.

This simple sticker might have been my favorite cosmetic modification of the meet.

One of the many awards that would be given out later in the day.

I saw a few Bike-urious readers at the event, including George G!

Bike-urious reader Ken M brought his gorgeous Triumph out to the show. His son rode the KTM Duke 990 in the background – good taste runs in the family!

Jerry Burak brought a couple of motorized bicycles, including this CycleMaster which made me think of my time at the National Motorcycle Museum when Vy and I went to England last year.

A stunning custom based on a Honda CB750.

A modern CB1100 with a Whitehouse retro kit (~$6,000)

Norton frame, Ariel Square Four motor. This was previously owned by Homer Knapp.

The license plate translates to “Mini Woody”. As I was taking this photo, two gentlemen behind me were admiring the car while one guy said to his friend “that’s what Rebecca calls you, right?”

If you like what you see, I’ve got another 86 photos for you to enjoy in this album. Enjoy!
