This week’s theme is yellow… actually a pic of one of the most compelling motorcycles ever. This yellow Cyclone (1000cc OHC racer) was displayed at the Legends of the Motorcycle Concours, and was clean enough to eat from. Unfortunately it will never be ridden again, and is basically sculpture at this stage in history. Pound for pound as valuable as a Rodin, and arguably just as beautiful. Comments?
