@ parkwood60, we use thumbnails in the comments because it saves room.

Yamaha YR-1 350 Episode: 1.04

Yamaha YR-1 350 minor vehicle

The guy who owned this owned several Hondas, and I'm guessing this is yet another one. Hondas are almost invariably four strokes. This one is a two stroke twin. I haven't decided yet whether it is a Suzuki or a Yamaha. The reason I could not work out whther it was a Suzuki or a Yamaha was because it is a Bridgestone 350 from the 1966-70 period. Because it is something of an orphan is probably the reason why it is in the collection in the TV series.

Except it isn't a Bridgestone, they were always disc valve engines and had a more pointed tank. That's a 1967 Yamaha YR 1

Yamaha TT500 Episode: 1.06

1971? The TT500 was current from 1976 to 1981. According to this page - http://www.bikepics.com/yamaha/tt500/ - the orange tank makes it 1979.

1977 is the Fuel Tank, the TT leter are red only in 1977, in 1978 the TT is "Competition Yellow", in 1979 the TT is "New Electro Orange".

Harley-Davidson FL Episode: 1.08

Appears to be a 58 or 59 Harley-Davidson Duo-Glide, but that's not an original seat, so it might well be a assortment of several different bikes, Harley's are fun that way.

.......with a '70s Shovel Head swapped in

Yamaha XJ750 Episode: 1.08

1981 Yamaha XJ 750 Seca

Cleveland Model 20 Episode: 1.09

Cleveland Model 20 minor vehicle

Cleveland built these single cylinder two stroke bikes with shaft drive from about 1916 to 1924. The early ones had round fuel tanks but this one looks to be a later model - possibly 1923 or 1924. I don't think there was a model name because they only built the one type until they switched to bigger four cylinder four strokes in about 1925.

Similar to this 1923 Model 20 - http://motorbike-search-engine.co.uk/classic-bikes-2/cleveland-classic-bikes.php

Piaggio Vespa Rally 200 Episode: 1.10

Piaggio Vespa Rally 200 background vehicle

The maroon one, in the foreground. Probably a Piaggio P-Series.

Nearest- Maroon scoot is most likely a Rally 200, note the raised gas tank, plus that's a re-spray in a stock Rally color. Middle- That is a '05 PX 150 Serie America (The 'Vintage Green' scoot) #3rd- some unknown Lambretta, prob a Li something

Honda Monkey Z50 Episode: 2.07

Honda Monkey Z50 background vehicle

Looks like a Honda logo on the tank. That's what I thought but I couldn't quite make it out.

LOoks like one of the many different 'monkey bikes' That Honda made. Might be one of these - http://vint-73.com/?Grab=Bikes%20for%20Sale&Action=562 - Honda Z50A.
