    How about the H-D Baja?

  2. #47
    Harley is coming out with an ADV bike - again! Brim's is an amazing place. In addition to the main showroom, we got to go in a couple of nearby warehouses full of bikes.

    All are for sale. Tom Brim said that several of the bikes in the current Cannonball Run were sold by him. Fairly recent article in Rider Magazine about Brim's here -

    The Cannonball is for 1929 and older models.

    Technology or build date??? The HD Baja might qualify depending on the answer.

    Yes, in the 70s along with the Sprint 250/350 made in ITALY.

    Brim's still has plenty of bikes that meet the pre-1929 date.

    In many instances the bikes have interesting stories associated with them. For example, the 1925 Harley in the above picture was purchased new by a feller that had just gotten married. His wife did not want him to have a bike. He couldn't bring himself to sell the bike, so he disassembled the bike and stored it in the attic of his mother's house. In 1964 the bike was discovered by a subsequent relative and assembled, but not ridden. It remained in a garage for about another 50 years until an estate sale. Brim obtained the bike and the story of the bike's history. I asked the price and began thinking about the next Cannonball Run - fortunately sanity returned

    There are just so many bikes like I used to own, or wished I'd owned. Tom Brim said that George Barber (of the Barber Museum https://www.barbermuseum.org/the-museum/barber-story) contacted him after the story in Rider came out. It sounds like they had quite a conversation.

    Here are a few more of the newer bikes at Brim's -

    Before the Cannonball riders started coming in Tuesday evening (11 Sept) folks were coming in to watch. Some were riding interesting bikes.

    Below is a Janus bike. https://www.janusmotorcycles.com/
    This is a 250 cc new bike, made to resemble an old bike. The rider and her husband were dressed in period appropriate clothes.

    It also appeared that there were some folks riding old bikes, but not actually part of the Cannonball Run. These bikes were parked nearby, but not with the Cannonball Run bikes.

    [HD] Sprint 250/350 made in ITALY
    Known in that fair land as the Aermacchi 250/350 (because it was an Italian bike to start with, not a Harley Davidson); they sold 50% of their production to HD. Aermacchi built motorcycles following WWII and finally sold the production to AMF HD. They made better aircraft...

    The Nortons 115, 116 and 77 were in Iowa and they're on the Riders list of Cannonball riders.

    Here's the Stage 9 standings.
    http://motorcyclecannonball.com/uplo...s-20180916.pdf

    Stage 9 ended at Sturgis.
    They had a day off in Sturgis and today is Sturgis to Billings, Mt.

    Looks like 10 bikes are out.
