VCC Wanganui (2)

Some motorcycles from the Wanganui VCC public display day
My friend Lloyd, with whom I stayed  in Wanganui, preparing his Triumph 5TA for "lift-off", to ride it to the Wanganui Classic Motorcycle Club's display.

This 1950 Speed Twin was superbly restored.

Bikes of this era look the best to my eye. A 1969 BSA Lightning.

Who remembers Yamahas little FS1 from 1969?

Ariel Square Fours had a reputation for overheating the rear cylinders, but were apparently fine machines when sorted.

The in-line four of a Henderson.

I owned a Kawasaki Z1A exactly the same colour as this. Mine was stock standard, but this one has a number of visible modifications. I wonder what is modified internally?

This Norton 850 with electric start, must be one of the last of the breed.
