I was at 'Oldies' last night and noticed they have some fine bikes there.

This magnificent (I heard it running) BMW R50 is actually for sale.

I was told it's a 1968 model and it's only done 4,976 miles.
A guy named 'Boy' owns it and he's at 'Oldies' between 10am and 8pm.
He's also the owner of the Vespa shop just down from 'Oldies'.

Also there is a 1952 Norton Model 7 ...

... and a 1937 Triumph Speed Twin.

They have a 1960 BSA B40R 'Scrambler' which wasn't possible to photograph last night, so I'll go in a get a photo of it today and put here tonight.
In fact I'll re-photograph all of the bikes in daylight.

'Boy' imports bikes mainly from Japan.
He will soon be taking delivery of a Vincent (not Black Shadow!).
And a Velocette.
And a MV Agusta.

'Oldies' is on Charoenrat Road, just down from Rimping Condo at

Very nice collection, does he have plates on them?
Would love to see the Velocette, especially if it is a 500CC Venom Thruxton.

All of these bikes, except the BMW, have been sold.
Owner of 'Oldies' is Khun Aon.
He told me he gets Green Books for the bikes and it's OK to put his number here, which is 0890949998.
He speaks good English.

Someone flying in with an oversized suitcase?
What's the weight of the frame needed?

Any info on how they value a 30+ year old bike with regards to the greenbook costs ?
I have a 1978 R100S in Australia. Wonder what it would cost to have that greenbooked in Thailand ?
