"The Vintage Motor Cycle Club, with over 17,000 Members, united by a common appreciation of the engineering skills and vision of those who built the pioneer machines, has ensured that such machines are not preserved as lifeless exhibits in a museum, but are brought to life on frequent occasions in order that a new generation can marvel at the handiwork of the pioneers, and an older generation can once again view with nostalgia the machines they rode in days gone by."

Following the generous gift of all the original factory records held by the Science Museum we now holds the surviving records of a very large part of the once mighty British motorcycle industry.

From the following factories:
Douglas Vespa,
Royal Enfield Up to 1920, 
Velocette (pre RS frames) and late Zenith
We do not photocopy any of the factory records
If you would like the full factory record, we will need a side view photograph of the machine and either rubbings or photographs of the engine and frame numbers.
The cost is £37.50 (£25.00 if a member) typed on a certificate.
You can pay by card, cheque, postal order (made payable to VMCC Ltd) or by PayPal.
