Rob Drury's Velocette Website

The purpose of this website is to bring together strands of information about these remarkable motorcycles.The website is set in the present tense and is interested in Mkviii's now. I have resisted the temptation to post archive photographs and reprints of old articles as I feel that these are well catered for elsewhere.

Though very beautiful, Mkviii's are robust and functional machines, designed to win races. A Mkviii is a joy to own and special to ride.
