Just got back from the Coast of Maine this afternoon. I went up (7 hour ride) for some R&R...LobsteR and LageR. I found both, and much more!
Tucked between Lobster shacks and Moccasin shops was a building filled with old cars and low and behold...Old crusty motorcycles, just the way I like 'em. Reading Standards, Excelsior, Indians, Harley, cool motors, etc. I almost didn't even stop. It's an Auto Museum in Wells Maine, just south of Kennebunkport (where the Bush family hangs out). Nice people, when they found out I knew something about old bikes they opened up the chicken wire and let me have the run of the place. I could have stayed there all day...but hell I was on vacation and there was lobster and beer everywhere you turned! Shit they even put lobster in hot dog rolls up there!

  1. Cool museum photage, the Hildebrand & Wolfmuller in that museum is one of 6? known original examples of this crude fourstroke motorcycle where the rear wheel acts as flywheel for the engine.
    One could just wonder what it would be like popping around on such a creation.
