Velocette Thruxton Cutaway

From The Classic Motorcycle April 1995
Velocette had three Thruxtons on their stand at the Earls Court show in 1966, including this sectioned and cutaway model.  sections removed showed the insides of the engine, transmission, fork, headlight shell, etc. According to Bertie Goodman, it took about 6 months to complete in the final assembly area of the factory. After the company closed down in 1971, the bike went to the family, by the nineties, following two and half years of restoration, it was put on display at Simon Goodman's parts business but it apparently is now part of the Herb Harris collection
