NACC member Andrew Parry, a newly-retired gentleman of leisure, is planning to ride his 35-year old Yamaha Townmate, all 80cc’s of it, from Kidderminster in the West Midlands, to Slovenia in May 2020. Andrew reckons he will be able to do the journey on 10 gallons of fuel, hence the title. Watch this space for information as when he sets off his blog will detail his adventures.

An NACC member has had two cyclemotors stolen on 2nd January from his home in Leicester. They are: an unregistered Cyclemaster, engine no. 138987, in a Raleigh all steel bike – frame number 7924/ NN. This bike is fitted with a rear motorcycle type stand on an extended spindle so it is quite novel. It also has a French pannier bag and Huret speedo among other period fittings, including a re-spoked wheel.
The second cyclemotor is a 1955 Teagle (see photo above), engine number 10428, in an Indian ‘Atlas’ 28″ 1996 bicycle (looks like 1950s Raleigh). It has a red-painted fuel tank and is registered as WTC 845. Both cyclemotors are in fully restored condition and were last on display at Founders Day in July 2019 on the Leicester Section NACC Stand. Leicester police have been informed. Please call Roger on 07944 681195 if you’ve been offered either of these machines or the engines separately from the bicycles, or even some spares. We’ll post photos of these cyclemotors here as soon as they arrive.
