My home town of Clarion, PA is home to the Autumn Leaf Festival and the first Sunday of the week long event the main street of town which also happens to be route 322 is closed from 2nd avenue to 8th for a show of classic cars and motorcycles. The weather was perfect and the turn out was as good as I've ever seen it. While my fiancee and are planning a move next month, we currently live in town and are in convenient proximity to main street. At around 8a.m. I drove my 1982 Toyota FJ-40 up to join the ranks of muscle cars and classics and then returned home quickly to begin riding my old BMW's up to main street one by one. Once they were all lined up, I had to stand back and admire them standing together proudly together as I've never had them assembled together in one place before.

There were of course many Harley's, new and old. It is, after all, western Pennsylvania. There were a dozen or so old Honda's, a few Triumph's, a beautiful old Ariel MKII, and a couple old Penton Jackpiners. There was only one other BMW in attendance and it showed up in quite an interesting livery.

Enjoy the photos!

Had my lunch astride a pretty comfy seat.

Here's one built by OCC for the Army. Grabs tons of attention but I'll say the allure escapes me.

My CBX

Sorry Chris - just saw this post - a little late! Great write-up and pics of ALF. Thanks for taking some great photos of my CBX. My '59 should be ready for next year! Hope the move went well
