“Bikes by the Bay” Vintage Motorcycle Show

by Dave on August 11, 2013

I’ll be the first to admit I don’t know squat about motorcycles. I’ve had a few over the years; Scramblers, Enduros, a Bultaco Sherpa, a Triumph chopper. I’ve got an old Honda S65 that I keep for a pit bike — but I stay off the street. A couple of close calls with distracted drivers was enough for me – and this was before texting became popular.

While I don’t know much about ’em, I do like to look at bikes, especially the vintage variety. Each year the city of Capitola hosts Bikes on the Bay, a gathering of domestic and imported classics combined with a vintage parts swap meet. I know it’s Off-Topic for a hot rod website, but I snapped a few photos. Maybe you’ll see something here that fires your memory banks.

There were quite a few vendors in the swap area, but like many car shows, the most interesting stuff could be found out in the parking lot.
