Below is the sequence of my efforts of my hobby that is rebuilding and modifying vintage and veteran motorcycles

1962 James Commodore

On completing the Velocette I was looking for another vintage  English bike to restore and was fortunate to acquire a 1962 James Commodore  Vin No CL 252870 complete in reasonable condition, this will be a relative easy restoration.

I am addicted now and will contine to search for another challenge however, here we go!!


1957 Matchless

Whilst waiting for parts for Triumph Thunderbird I was fortunate enough to locate a 1957 matchless G11 Engine No 03944 which was part of a deceased estate and was only partly restored to good to miss….







1952 Triumph Thunderbird

This of course then became an addiction and I acquired a 1952 650cc Triumph Thunderbird Engine No 6T11678NA which looked complete, but in fact the guy I bought it from had obviously dismantled the engine….







1949 BSA 250cc

I have been able to source this gem of a bike from a guy in Lismore NSW.
It is all there and only requires some tender loving care to bring it back to its condition as purchased…


1948 Velocette Mac

On to the next challenge a 1948 Velocette MAC Engine No 13938 a lot of pieces in poor condition with the need to source considerable parts

Will keep me from being bored I guess!!!….






1938 Scott Flying Squirrel

This is, in my view, my best acquisition to date. A true classic. I even have the original registration documents.

I am looking forward to a complete dismantle and rebuild of this marvellous piece of history.


1936 Panther 350cc

My collection is growing as I could not resist the opportunity to acquire what I think is a real gem with girder forks a 1936 Panther 350cc Engine No P6290

Restoration will be a joy!






1925 Douglas

I decided after having retired I would complete the restoration of my 1925 350cc  Engine No 01098 horizontally opposed belt driven Douglas….
