The Coventry Parade continued...

I am definitely a bit behind with my latest postings because the Coventry Parade is the VMCC
Warwickshire Sections premier event and this years was the clubs 58th and took place
on 11th August. The run starts at Coombe Country Park on the outskirts of Coventry.
Here we have Brian Thomas just arrived on his 1928 Norton Model CS1, Brian built
this machine up from parts...he started with an engine and then a frame.

Coventry Parade continued....

Now you have your machine at the start of the event,  you just have to work out how to attach your number so it wont blow of ....gaffer tape, zip ties or string?

Coventry Parade continued...

And of course the most important part of the event... the Lunch Break!

Coventry Parade continued...

This 1970 Suzuki AS50 was rebuilt by the owner Barry Heath from a pile of rusty pieces after
lying  under a car port for 26 years.....very nice machine!

Coventry Parade Part 2

Love this overhead valve AJS spotted here at the lunch stop. The program says 1928 500cc K8, hopefully one day my own side valve AJS will grow up into one of these....better start saving!
