A motorcycle enthusiast since his early teens, Rod has always been fascinated by Velocette, collecting the catalogues, reading the road test and pedal cycling all over the country to see them! Other makes were purchased first but a 1963 Clubman was eventually acquired, starting off a long period of ownership and yet more research enriched from the many Velo friendships borne along the way. An author of Velocette books, Rod has also written several articles published in well known Classic magazines.Review:
