Lesney Triumph T110 with Sidecar -- Made in England in 1960

This Lesney Triumph T110 with Sidecar is not perfect.  It has a broken handlebar and chipped paint.  This distracts from the monetary value but I like the patina.

1966 Harley Davidson/Aermacchi M50 Sport

I have owned this bike for a couple years.  I plan to eventually repaint it in the original  colors.

3 speed shift twist grip similar to a vintage scooter.

Light switch is typical of the cheap Italian components of the day.

Front brake is not much better than a bicycle.
