As promised, here's more highlights from the Veterama Ludwigshaffen, a swap meet located in south-central Germany. See the post below for more info on this event.

Here's a nice BMW R65LS, just like the one featured in the March/April 2006 issue of Motorcycle Classics. It was for sale for 3,000 Euro.

I couldn't resist this cute Velocette 250cc four-stroke, shaft-drive boxer. I bought it with only 312 original miles on it.

Always a popular place, the beer stand was doing business at 9 a.m.

I can't seem to get away from the custom Harley scene, but notice the clean original take-off parts probably going for a song.

A BMW R75M, restored and ready to go.

Inside, vendors are a little more professional. Here's the Zundapp club stand.

This Cafe Norton is all business.

You can still get a good deal on a classic BMW airhead. This Paris Dakar R80GS sold for 3,500 Euro.

Here's a beautiful restored BMW R25. The only problem is it was 7,500 Euro.

Last but not least, here's a Zundapp KS601 "Green Elephant."

This is just a small selection of the several hundred vendors that attended. This year I bought 14 classic bikes and 5 sidecars. The dollar is at a historic low, but I was still able to find some deals! -- John Landstrom
