Review quote

essential reading for anyone seeking sound advice ... Easy to follow and utterly reliable ... If you already own a Velocette single, or are thinking of doing so, GBP12.99 is a very small price to pay for this utterly invaluable guide. Old Bike Mart Henshaw provides enough information on the "idiosyncrasies" of Velocette singles to make it apparent that while these are great old bikes, they are not for everyone, but when it comes to considering a purchase, his book really is. UltimateMotorcycling.com This is a truly comprehensive guide and is thoroughly recommended to anyone contemplating buying a Velocette 350 or 500 single. On The Level This handy pocket sized book is not only an interesting read but will repay the purchase price many times over. South East Biker Magazineshow more
