In 1965 the Velocette factory optimised its product range introducing one of the most rapid 500 of that time (over 190 km/h), the 500 “Thruxton”. This bike was developed in memoriam of the Velocette that won the prestigious endurance race, the “500 miles of Thruxton”. With only a thousand of samples constructed from 1965 to 1967.

The here presented Velocette Thruxton is entirely original (VMT) and underwent a complete restoration in 2004 / 05 by the British specialist Steve Tonkin. The bike has only run a 100 miles since its restoration.
This is one of the most mythical, most beautiful and most rapid British motorcycles of the 60s and one of the most sought after by collectors.
