The Vintage Motorcycle Club ' Warwickshire Sections' Autumn Run

 This is Frank and Alan putting the world to right,  Frank ( with drink ) is standing next to his
beloved 1929 Panther model 85. Frank purchased the machine as a rusty wreck in 1969 for £6.00
Panther only built this model for two years and it was the only model in the range that came
with a certificate guaranteeing that the machine would do a minimum of 85 MPH. 
Alan was the organiser of our Autumn run, and a great day it turned out to be...well done Alan.
And not all Velocette's are Black!

 This BSA Golden Flash has covered just 300 miles since being put back on the road-
   comes with a  with a very nice unrestored patina.
Steve's very nice Triumph enjoying the Autumn sunshine before the start,
he recently  rebuilt the engine after snapping a crankshaft.....but the bike  still got him home!
