Lest we forget

Yesterday was 11/11; the day after tomorrow is Armistice Day. So it seemed appropriate to upload the backlog of pics from the Great War to Le Melange. Young men with motor cycles from many nations, all of whom would have been happier riding their bikes to a pub with a well filled flapper bracket. Take a look, and join me in counting our blessings. Lots more pics have also been added to the first few years of the 20th century and as part of researching (ok googling) caption material I’ve come across some excellent coverage of continental races in 1905, including the Coupe Internationale which was a triumph (well, a Laurin & Klemen) for the Czechs. Or jump forward to 1922 and find out how to make your very own prop-powered trike.
