  • [01] Classic motorcycle exhibition in Hania

    A journey through yesteryear atop motorcycles, three-wheelers, scooters and bicycles will again be revived this year in Hania, on the occasion of the 6th Classical Motorcycle Exhibition that opened at the old customs house in the picturesque Cretan port city this week.

    Seventy-five motorcycles, with the oldest dating to 1910 and the rarest being a 1914 Triumph and a BSA H28 - replete with acetylene headlights - will be on display. Other two-wheelers on display include now out-of-production models by Zundapp, Solex, Bultaco, NSU, Norton and Florettes.

    All of the cycles are in extremely good working order.

    The inaugural exhibition began in 2000 and takes place at the end of every summer in Hania. This year's event concludes on Sept. 6.
