I must apologize for being a little tardy posting up the pictures from this years CVMG National Rally in Paris Ontario last weekend but I have been somewhat distracted of late. The theme for this years show was: Ride For Your Country Honouring Canadian Military Riders and Their Motorcycles There were some spectacular bikes there. If only they could talk.......... Unfortunately while there were people there, none of the owner/caretakers were around so I couldn't get any more information than what is presented here. Now this next one is really interesting and a unique piece of history. A 'Maple Leaf' built in 1917 by Jacob Scheib from Rodney Ontario, Canada. A little town about 40 miles west of me, Maxpete's and Lakeview's way. Supposedly the only way to get any materials during the First World War times was if you were building for the Canadian Military, so he built four of these for the Canadian Forces. This is the only known survivor. He even made his own taps and dies to aid in the process. I can't begin to imagine the ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness of one man accomplishing this back in 1917 wartimes. What a treat to be able to see these historic machines.
