19 Au­gust, 2017 – Glenorie NSW

Held ev­ery Au­gust as a fund-raiser for the his­toric Fa­gan Park precinct in Glenorie, north west Syd­ney, this year saw cool and windy con­di­tions for a small but qual­ity gath­er­ing. As usual, the turnout was dom­i­nated by about 20 Ve­lo­cettes, rang­ing from a 200cc Valiant, an LE, sev­eral Thrux­tons and Sports­mans and an In­dian Velo, with three Vin­cents plus a smat­ter­ing of other makes. Th­ese in­cluded an ex-army Du­cati Con­dor 350, a hand­some Tri­umph Thun­der­bird with match­ing Til­brook side­car, a Brough Su­pe­rior Alpine, and a beau­ti­fully pre­sented 1928 K7 OHC AJS..

Glis­ten­ing in the win­ter sun, a 1928 K7 over­head camshaft AJS 350. Mil­i­tary spec Du­cati Con­dor was on hand to keep the peace. Brian Dawes brought his MSS Velo from Cowra – an un­usual model with fi­bre­glass-en­cased crankcases as was briefly the fash­ion in the mid-fifties. Look­ing very smart, Tri­umph Thun­der­bird with match­ing Til­brook side­car.
