OK, when's the last time you saw one of these?

A Vincent sidecar outfit. Pretty unique, I'd say.

Lots of other sidecars and classic bikes (inlcuding Nortons, Triumphs and BSAs) at the new Hampshire Vintage Celebration (for classic race cars and race bikes). Great event. My favourite is the "tiddler" class of under 50cc road racing bikes. Mostly Italian and water cooled with 20,000+ RPM redlines and at least 10 gears. Sound like Buzzy Bees.

I took more bike photos at last years 2008 event. You can see them ~At 2008 NH Vintage Event~ (http://vintageracer.tripod.com/nh-vrg-08-4.html)

Wow! Not heard of a Vincent engine being used for those purposes before. Great pictures, it looks like a fun event. I too love that one of the dog in the sidecar.
