Harris Venom

This is a beautiful bike in a nice (but slightly unlikely) setting. This racer was built in 1962 by South African Geoff Lacey, using a 1957 Velocette Venom engine. The engine was modified with a Lou Branch head and installed in a Norton Featherbed frame where it did well in South African events in the hands of Alan Harris.

Velocette, "The thinking man's motorcycle".
Yet another post that shows impeccable taste, my friend. ;-)
