1967 Velocette Thruxton  500cc.

The Velocette Thruxton has long been acknowledged by many as the definitive British road based sporting 500cc single machine. Competing with the BSA Goldstar as the best production cafe racer of the late 1960's. It represents the ultimate form of the Velocette pushrod single. Its origins can be found in its less sporting stable mate the Velocette Venom. Competition driven cylinder head development coupled with the thirsty Amal GP carburettor saw the engine grow into a serious production racing proposal. Success on the track in production endurance events and victory in the Thruxton endurance event persuaded the Hall Green concern to market the model as the Thruxton. The Thruxton returned a fantastic victory in the 1967 Isle of Man Production TT. Only 1100 Velocette Thruxton machines were produced before the company closed its doors for the final time in 1971. Its relative rarity means that the Thruxton remains a much coveted machine in Classic motorcycle circles today.
