This little poppet is a 50cc, 4 speeder, which can get up to just over 40mph on the flat. But if there is a head wind or on hills, she rapidly struggles. She went round the Isle of Man TT course in 1 hour 17 minutes (not bad for 50cc), but needed first gear briefly when starting the mountain climb.

250cc single, beloved by many pre-65 enthusiasts. Looks a picture, but a bit uncomfortable for longer road rides, as she’s designed for mainly standing up

This was originally a 500cc, now bored to 600cc. It’s been made less life-threatening by having the throttle changed to the usual, right-hand side, unlike it’s original spec. Foot clutch, 3 speed. Shame about the colour!

The Douggie has done several Pioneer Runs since being with us. It’s a 350cc, 2 and 3/4 HP, two speed, clutchless, push start (but not uphill), decent ride, for a bike that’s 107 years old, bless her.

197cc Villiers 8E with a 3 speed box. It was rescued from a skip in 1993 in a dilapidated state and it’s had a complete restoration. It was originally registered in Reading Borough and I am only the 2nd registered owner, both owners from Berkshire. An easy little bike to ride.

This is an ex Royal Signals display team bike.
The bike has gone back home to North Yorks!
The buyer brought his grandad to view the bike, who rode with the display team and was responsible for selling off the bikes originally. He sold the bikes for the Army £100 each.
