2010 El Camino Historic Motorcycle Show

The 2010 El Camino Historic Motorcycle Show was actually the first classic motorcycle event that I attended upon launching this website. At the time, I had precious few original bike photos and an opportunity like this September show was well worth the drive for me to come from Northern California to Torrance in Southern California. It was a good show, but an enormous swap meet. There was a very eclectic collection of motorcycles at this judged show. But as you will see from the attached photos, the bikes in the swap meet area were just as entertaining to look at as the ones in the show.
ABOVE & BELOW: All the British bikes were lined up together. Above is a BSA M20 500 flathead, and below in the foreground is an 1958 Ariel Square Four, backed up by a 1961 BSA Gold Star.
ABOVE: 1957 BSA B34 Gold Star motocrossed.

BELOW: 1966 BSA A65 Spitfire.
ABOVE: 1961 Triumph 500 Speed Twin, complete with "Bathtub"-styling.

BELOW: 1960 BSA 650 A10 Spitfire off-road bike.
ABOVE: A team of able judges scrutinized every bike carefully and methodically. I know, I followed them around and watched. I've judged at bike shows myself, and am always anxious to learn what I can. From what I could see, I thought they did a terrific job. It's difficult to judge when there are so many incredible bikes, each one as nice as the other, and yet every one completely unique. It's a challenge.

BELOW: The swap meet at the 2010 El Camino Historic Motorcycle Show was enormous, much bigger than the show itself.

ABOVE & BELOW: Rat Bikes were a consistent theme at the 2010 El Camino Historic Motorcycle-Show, or at least at the swap meet.
