That's the price paid for this 1966 500cc Velocette Thruxton that, since the 1970s, had been languishing in a barn (shame, shame - Ed). And apparently, the Velocette Owners Club doesn't have this machine on its register.It's had two owners, will need more than a squirt of WD40 to re-commission it, and (we're told by H&H Auctions) represents a new world record for a bike of this type. For many years after, the largely misunderstood marque achieved almost mythical status and fetched high sums of money, many bikes remaining firmly within the Velocette clique and changing hands only among the cognoscenti.Weise "affordable" Lima gloves Triumph's 2016 Bonneville teaser Another Hayward T140 belt failure Second generation HUD for bikes Marzocchi closes.

Well this bike has perhaps helped in some small way to re-establish the Thruxton which, when properly sorted, still offers one of the greatest classic British motorcycle rides you're ever likely to get.stp drvng u mrn Looking for a Stafford alternative?Another implied classic bike threat from London Mayor Boris Johnson?New 350,000 Jensen GT for 2016RE Continental GT, soon in black Lincoln bans legal highs in public places Leonard Simon Nimoy: 1931 - 2015Cheffins Cambridge Sale: Apr 2015Race Retro Feb 2015 auction results4.7 million grant for Brooklands Full size "Airfix" motorcycle kits Two Francis-Barnett bikes "launched"Gerry Lloyd Wells: 1929 - 2014Harley-Davidson's "dream job" offer Road accidents & preventable events The velocity of money?
