July Vintage Bike OC Meet
Suzuki Rotary

Huntington Beach, Calif. - I was working remotely from Michigan so we had a crack-team of of great volunteers helping this month. A big thanks to John Zindler, Brian "Tink" Tinkler, Ken Deagle and Jinx Verona for helping out. It sounds and looks like it was a great meet with 70 bikes showing up.

Suzuki Showdown
We don't get a lot of Suzuki's showing up to our meet. This month we had two fairly rare ones. A 1977 Suzuki GT 750 (Water Buffalo) and a 1975 Suzuki RE5 Rotary both of which are rarely seen at the meet.

Interesting Rare Suzuki
1975 Suzuki RE5 Rotary
It was an strong showing for Suzuki's this month with a rare 1975 Suzuki RE5 Rotary also showing up. I'm not sure who owned this beauty, but we've only had a couple over the history of the meet.

Thanks to everyone for showing up and making this another great event. A special thanks to John Zindler, Brian Tinkler, Ken Deagle and Jinx Verona for helping out with the voting. I'll see you at next month's meet, August 14, 2022.
