The roar of vintage motorcycles in Cuba…

The town of Varadero has hosted the country's first ever Harley-Davidson convention.

The American brand was favoured by the authorities before the 1959 Revolution. Almost all of the country's remaining models date from that time.

But because of the US trade embargo, Cuban bikers have had to pull out all the stops to keep their machines running.
