A new addition to the Gallery – an Aermacchi 350 prepared by FCL Racing in Cranleigh and ridden by nine times Manx Grand Prix winner, Bill Swallow. The photo is reproduced by courtesy of Dick Linton, FCL Racing.
We have just received a photograph of an immaculate 1914 Triumph TT Roadster Type D and added it to the Gallery. It has a 500cc, single side valve engine and a single gear, direct belt drive. The bike has been restored over a number of years and taken part in several Pioneer Runs for veteran machines from London to Brighton.
You may have seen the article by Paul Gander on the restoration of the 1911 Triumph that had been owned by his grandfather, Tom Gander, which is included on our “Links to the Past” page.
Paul has now sent us a picture of the bike in a 1947 edition of “Motor Cycling”, being ridden by a SK “Keith” Rolfe from Cowbeech. “Maybe a relative?” asks Paul.
We have accumulated a number of secondhand components which are being offered for sale with 75% of the proceeds going to charity. In 2016, we are supporting two local charities: the Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance and the Sussex Weald Branch of the Royal British Legion.
Take a look here and see if there is anything which is of interest!
