Pictures from my Archive… a frequent dip into photographs that I want to share with you….

Velocette sectioned a few of their motorcycles for exhibition at large Motorcycle Show's such as at Earles Court, London..... Len Moseley in his book "My Velocette Days", detailing his time working for Veloce Ltd, mentions a sectioned Venom model for the 1963 Earles Court Show, which he personally produced.
He also " ..wondered what became of the sectioned models of the LE and the various other sectioned machines...".
The UK Velocette Owners Club has two sectioned engines I have seen on display, some years back, one an iron MAC, the other a Venom or MSS.
But I am unsure if the sectioning was done by a private owner or at Veloce Ltd.
The sectioned Venom Thruxton pictured is listed on the back of the photograph as at the 1967 Earles Court Show on the Velocette Stand....the photo published in
"The MotorCycle" and acknowledgement is made to them.
Left click on photograph to enlarge.
