I am Continuing to rebuild bikes but I have transitioned this blog to a new address    Please clink on this link

1935 Velocette Mac

I have acquired a 1935 Velocette Mac, (my birth year). I am excited to be adding to my collection of English bikes (9 in total). Some would say I am addicted to restoration of what some would consider masterpieces. I plead guilty. 90% of the bike is there, albeit in a sorry sate. See photos…







1957 Matchless

Whilst waiting for parts for Triumph Thunderbird I was fortunate enough to locate a 1957 matchless G11 Engine No 03944 which was part of a deceased estate and was only partly restored to good to miss….





1952 Triumph Thunderbird

This of course then became an addiction and I acquired a 1952 650cc Triumph Thunderbird Engine No 6T11678NA which looked complete, but in fact the guy I bought it from had obviously dismantled the engine….







1949 BSA 250cc

I have been able to source this gem of a bike from a guy in Lismore NSW.
It is all there and only requires some tender loving care to bring it back to its condition as purchased…


1948 Velocette Mac

On to the next challenge a 1948 Velocette MAC Engine No 13938 a lot of pieces in poor condition with the need to source considerable parts

Will keep me from being bored I guess!!!….






1938 Scott Flying Squirrel

This is, in my view, my best acquisition to date. A true classic. I even have the original registration documents.

I am looking forward to a complete dismantle and rebuild of this marvellous piece of history.


1936 Panther 350cc

My collection is growing as I could not resist the opportunity to acquire what I think is a real gem with girder forks a 1936 Panther 350cc Engine No P6290

Restoration will be a joy!






1925 Douglas

I decided after having retired I would complete the restoration of my 1925 350cc  Engine No 01098 horizontally opposed belt driven Douglas….
