It is a big day today, after working on this Velocette Thruxton for fifteen years Gunnar was ready to start and hopefully test the bike. My brother Dag and I were invited to help and share the important moment.
Here it is, on the custom made Velo stand.
Add some petrol, don`t sniff it.
It is always nice to watch other people doing all the work.
The important last minute adjustment.
The Thruxton is a tricky machine to start, so long time Thruxton owner Dag got the honor.
It started, the oil was circulating and it sounded great. It is time to get it out.
It`s thumbs up, so give it to the owner.
“And first gear is up?”
You can easily break the speed limit in first gear…….and nobody noticed the lack of registration and helmet….
An ear to ear grin……
It`s party time!
A very happy man!
And the number on the nicely restored speedometer………A coincident? I don`t think so….
