Interesting to compare lugs, and even the battery platform. Not sure how long the twin front down tubes lasted - maybe 1933-4 or so.

Best for Christmas,

Velo frame numbers are reasonably well known - happy to look it up if you like, but I can't do it if I don't know it. 95% of British frame numbers are stamped on the seat lug or the steering head.

I fekking hate, despise, loathe Christmas and all the BS and outstretched hands that go with it.

I went to Salisbury today and had to run the gauntlet of the Christmas market, basically a collection of sheds selling tat and overpriced german sausage baps.
Happily I met a man doing a survey about what I thought of it,so I told him........................ ;) :o
Feeling better now. ;D

I expect William's hissed off. He's president of the FA. That's one free booze up he won't be getting. I wonder what he's doing with his tickets?

I bet I know who you are talking about.........a pain in the arse septic know all,always goes one better.

I spent seven years on one site trying to help the others often with daft questions, It got more and more irritating, seemingly specialising in the sort of prat who asked complicated questions, about silly problems, thereby showing in reality he knew bugger all, then challenging the answer I gave.

In the end I came to the conclusion that the people who buy expensive classic bikes these days are middle-aged men who have done well in managerial positions or who have got a few bob and hate being told they have done something wrong or have bought a pile of crap for several 1000 more that it was worth.

A lot of the time their previous riding was done on a Honda 50 or a Bantam. Worst of all are the wanna be electronics gurus who seek a complicated technology soaked answer to cleaning the points on their magneto.

"Hi Guys I just sourced this cool retro bike like my grandad had and it won't start, why not?" is the one that plays up my dyspepsia.

Why do they always want to restore some scabby moped to its "former glory"?  ::) ::)

Its that time of the year again, bah humbug. >:(

Cheers guys. I do have a number but up to now, Iíve been unable to find any information on it. Iím not sure if itís a frame number or something else. Hopefully Iíll be able to research a bit about velocette and find out what it is. Really appreciate.

TBH whatever the medium there will be some who post things I have no interest in whatever.

I just move swiftly on. It doesn't hurt me.

I must confess however to occasionally rising to the bait when a poster on that site extols the "virtues" of the "land of the free" with absolutely no relevance to motorcycles classic or not.
