    Someone may believe that the lack of dirt on the paint qualifies use of
    that word.

    Yuk. Why didn't he paint it in fluorescent "day-glo" yellow. Then the
    choice of colour would at least have served a purpose, to some potential

    At least there is some colour coordination with the license plate.

    oow nasty! You can't beat black with gold lines and lettering - various
    attempts to deviate from this have never looked as good - but then I was
    first registered in 1943 and my views may no longer hold. In my day
    bikes were real bikes with character - they started if they were in the
    mood - and left a lasting impression - a permanent oil stain and a hefty
    right leg.

    No one in his right mind would choose a Velocette as a getaway vehicle :eek:)

    Looks pretty clean to me. What exactly is not immaculate about it?
    Saw a lot worse with the original Zs back in the '70s, when they were,
    at least for a while, the 'custom'[1] bike of choice

    [1] Before the word got hijacked to mean 'Harley-based monstrosity'.

    Well, if someone runs you over when you're riding that, "Sorry mate I
    *did* see you" would be a perfectly reasonable excuse.

  10. Evidently I'm not in my right mind - both my (pre-war) MSS Velos started
    first poke, though my Clubman's Venom either started first time, or you
    could forget it for the rest of the day.

  11. Using the patented Mavis Beacon "Hunt&Peck" Technique, Champ
    I have previous with yellow bikes,

    And that is fucking horrible.

    Now I have had the mag re-magnetised my pre war MSS starts relatively
    easily. Likewise my Venom. My post war MAC is a little bit difficult. My
    biggest problem is starting the MAC when warm.
