I photographed this motorcycle in the exhibition hall at the Copdock Motorcycle show. A beautifully executed modern replica of a Flying Merkel based on a 1991 883cc Harley Davidson.

Nice shot. Do you have a photo of that Norton twin behind it ?

Sorry I didn't take a photo of the Norton. The hall was getting busy with folk moving into shot a lot. I thought it more unusual to see a "Flying Merkel", much rarer than the Norton which we see plenty of here. I'll remember you next time I see one and photograph it.
