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.
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!
