Despite the rainy weather conditions, vintage motorcycle enthusiasts made a good turnout to the Bayfield Old Bike Day held in the picturesque town of Bayfield in southwestern Ontario on Sunday, June 3rd.
According to event organizer Jerry Baljeu, 42 bikes were on display with favourites including a 1940 Red Indian with sidecar, a 1956 Ariel Twin owned by Jack Graham from Windsor, a single cylinder 1957 Royal Enfield ridden from Belmont by Geoff Doherty, a fine looking BSA Gold Star and two matching Kawasaki Z1R’s (neither owner knowing about the existence of one another). Additionally, the smallest bike on display was a 1965 Honda 50 Step-thru.
Winner of the ALBION “Best in Show” Award was Donald Broadfoot, owner of the 1940 Indian beautifully restored by Platinum Powersports from the Clinton area.
