Classic Bike Guide



Bob Currie tested the Shooting Star version in The Motor Cycle in August 1967. He wrote: “Useful power extends right down to the bottom of the rev range and that low-down punch is one of the Victor’s greatest charms. It permits the machine to get off the mark with all the urgency of an England forward streaking for a try; indeed, a little ham-fistedness in using in the throttle and clutch could result in the front wheel pawing the air. Light as a model of only half its size, beautifull­y damped front and rear, and with brakes that would stop it on a sixpence, the Victor acts like a mechanised polo pony. A zippy, handy, model which bids fair to give the big single a new lease of life. Those who have never tried the type before are in for a very pleasant surprise.”
