A 1930 Levis
It was love at first sight. I spotted it at an autojumble in Stafford, UK. A bit of haggling and it was mine. I sent a text to my wife saying all I bought was Black Levis. She assumed it was a pair of jeans until it arrived home. It also entailed a trip to the credit union and a loan for a ‘new bathroom’. Before a return trip to Durham to conclude the deal and bring it home.
Quite an advanced machine for 1930. Engine is a 350CC overhead valve twin port; gearbox is 4-speed Burman, foot change as opposed to hand change.
I have a head for all fuel that powers the combustion engine. I also enjoy a ride out the odd Sunday.

Riding my Levis in the Slievenamon pre-1930 rally, a three-day event run by the Irish Veteran and Vintage Motorcycle Club with planned routes around Kilkenny and surrounding town lands.
My Levis is a single seat machine. However, I do enjoy riding in the company of fellow enthusiasts.
Anybody riding an Indian-manufactured Royal Enfield.
