    Kettle Band

    Picture 1474.jpg
    Across the street form GrassRoots they had a farmers market set up and a kettle band was serenating the local buyers and sellers. They were from the local university, SEMO. They were very pleasant to listen too. I just needed a pinacolada to really get in the mood.

    Chuck Leo motorcycle Service

    Back inthe60's thru the 80's there were a lot of motorcycle shops in the Summer Av. area of east Memphis. Harry's Suzuki, Al's Honda, Leo's Kawasaki. the old Triumph dealer. All gone, all family owned locally. A remnant of that was Chuck Leo, who was working out of his family's old dealership on Summer Av.

    More stuff.

    A virtual cornucopia of bikes and bike stuff. The BSA belongs to Billy Leo, Chuck's Dad. The Leo's were I believe the last BSA dealer in Memphis. A newer Royal Enfield with hack attached.

    Motoorclassics rider Club.

    Picture 1509.jpg
    I was a charter member of this club and was at the first meeting. Billy Leo, Leo Goff, Jimmy Arnold, and others were the driving forse behind the club. Get the old bikes out and ride them. I rode my '71 R50, and '74 R90 on many of these rides. Sometimes we would have as many as 50 bikes on these weekend rides. These bikes from the 40's to the 70's got a lot of attention where ever we went.

    Leo's BMW

    Picture 1495.jpgPicture 1493.jpgPicture 1492.jpg
    Forgot to mention that Leo's was the BMW dealer back in the 60's and 70's. The timing devise was a German brand used by Billy in motorcycle time trial years ago. Butler and Smith on of the early BMW motorcycle importers. Chuck said it is a prized pocession, no doubt. I think the gauge was motmeter.
