Honda C114 1964

Entry number 050 – Entered by Loz

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.

Indian 741B 1941

Entry number 048 – Entered by Del

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!

DMW Mk 8 1958

Entry number 046 – Entered by Bert

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.
