Mallory Bike Bonanza 11 July 2015
A Velocette in a Suzuki frame - can't imagine what it would be like the other way round!
This is a 1968 Lynton 500 DOHC 4 valve, a one off, made by Colin Lyster. The bottom half is a Hillman Imp engine with Lysters own cylinder head. A lack of funds apparently led to the project being abandoned.
I don't think I've ever seen so many holes drilled in one motorcycle.
Beautiful Vincent Comet.
Good looking Kawasaki Z440 cafe racer.
I love MVs, this 2015 MV Agusta F4 RC (1 of just 250) must be the best looking bike out there.
Just to rub it in this was around the corner.
And then another.
At the other end of the scale was this gorgeous little French 75cc Burdin which is actually a "derny" used as a pacing machine for cycling events.
A Gillette Special195cc. Take 3 Mobylette moped cylinder heads and cylinders with home built crankcases in a Gilera frame and you have a Gillette.
I liked this - the bike / rider combination had a good period look although I couldn't identify the Triumph model.
Going for it! Vanessa McGlone getting the last mph out of her 1962 49cc Phillips Panda.
