Love the bikes this man builds. This one is really nice.
A 1000cc Velo V twin in a Harris chassis ?!This abstractly links to my Seeley Commando! I brought a set of Norvil forks complete with brakes. Usual long time search for parts, I only had a frame. This was in about 96. Fairspares told me the price of the wheels & discs #### me!
I then saw a small add & travelled to Nottingham in the small hours before a Mallory race meeting & collected a brilliant set of wheels & discs for a great price. I just did not have enough time as I would have stayed there for hours! The fella was changing the wheels for cast wheels as he felt he needed more tyre! He then shows me the bike up on stands cos I had the wheels in the van.
1000 cc Venom running on his own crankcase. Why the bigger wheels?because he had it in a Harris chassis!
He then showed me the mk1, in a touring set up with an adapted original frame. Some clever people around.
In another video he admitted he's not the first to do a Velocette V Twin and that there are 2-3 others. He says they dont look like factory bikes that they are "Specials" , whatever that means I dont know?Not distracting from his achievement, didn't someone else in the UK do the same thing with two Venoms back in the oooooh 1990s ?
