The third tranche of snaps from the Graham Walker....
|Bronze head overhead cam. Superb.|
|It even had an aroma of Castrol R about it!|
|James 'pineapple' engine.|
|Rare early Velocette KSS.|
|Triumph H with wicker torpedo sidecar.|
|As per the previous post it seemed to be the year of the|
|Indian from c. 1912. Way in advance of Brit|
bikes of the time.
|Exquisite engine of the Indian. The oil sight|
glass in the crank case is a nice feature.
|Humber that looks as if it was restored at the|
dawn of the vintage bike movement.
|Lots of springs grafted on to the Humber's|
downpipe, I can only assume this was a mod
done to improve cooling.
|1913 Kynoch with Precision engine.|
|Another view of the Kynoch.|
|Douglas ladies model.|
|If there were a prize for skid lid of the day this would be it.|
|Humber forecar detail.|
|T'other side of the Humber.|
|Tail end of the Clyno. Note twin chains (I assume|
a two speeder with sliding dogs gearbox a la Morgan).
Also check the neat rear jack stands, ideal for
fixing a rear wheel puncture.
|One of my favourites of the run, a TT model Triumph.|
|This TT Triumph has the luxury of a clutch.|
|Rider's eye view of the TT Triumph. Note on|
the left side a fuel gauge, a useful but very
|The Museum wheeled over this ex-works Rudge|
ridden by the great man himself.
|That's a lot to concentrate on when you even have the need|
to adjust steering damping on the fly.
|Graham Walker picked up a leg injury in the First World|
War. This required him to ride with a modified brake pedal
as seen here.
|The Walker Rudge bum pad is a pneumatic pillow type.|
|Finally this sweet BSA Silver Star. Genuine pre-war off|
road machines are rare indeed.
|Burgess air filter on the Silver Star.|
