Madrid Spain



 APRIL 15

My name is Adolfo Calles and i am the owner of a Harley -only shop in Madrid,Spain, called Bonneville. We are open since 1995 and we are racing the one and only Harley in the European Classic Endurance Championship. I know it sounds pretty stupid but we are romantics to the bone...
 The 23 and 24 of April we will attend a very interesting non competition meeting in Jarama track, here in Madrid. It is called Classicmoto (www.classicmoto.eu) and this year we will have 7 former World Champions on the track, including Agostini, Phil Read and Carlos Lavado.
Last year we were there with our Ironhead and it was very funny until we broke the chain at the end of the lane ( 200 kph)... Now our crankcase has a beautiful long scar...
   Anyway, this year we are attending the meeting with our two bikes, a silver 1980 Ironhead and the black 1985 ( keep the secret). We will release also our XR replica, which will not fully finished, and some stuff like my 63 Panhead and my Dirt Track style Sportster.
 Sincerelly, Adolfo Calles.
