Cuba 146 - On yer bike.

As you might imagine motorbikes are very popular in Cuba. I saw lots of newer moped things as well as one electric scooter, but there were also lots of older ones too. Here is a small selection!

Sidecar combinations were very common. I rather like the nail acting as a split-pin.



MZ, a popular make.



Taxi! Some were even operating as taxis.



Purple



Red



Triumph, not sure about the front fork?



The open Road!



Open-toed motorcycle boots!



The same dangers as here, looks like a lot of paperwork.

These take you back! You don't see sidecars here these days, except at vintage events.

certainly a wealth of subjects there!!

"On yer bike", except for the last.

Some interesting vintage machines you've managed to capture during your visit to Cuba, Andrew!

The bikes look almost as interesting as the cars!
