With around 1,600 members and growing, the National Autocycle and Cyclemotor Club Ltd. (NACC) is the largest club in the UK for enthusiasts of cyclemotors, autocycles, mopeds and small capacity motorcycles. The club has members all over the British Isles, with some 20 active local sections, plus we have many members overseas throughout the world. Membership is open to anyone interested in these and other similar small-engined machines. This year, 2021, we are celebrating our fortieth anniversary since foundation in 1981. We’re planning to hold a super National Rally where lots of new 40th anniversary-themed regalia will be available. Watch this space!
The club’s magazine “Buzzing” is published by the NACC six times a year. The 48 page full colour magazine includes a free advertising section for members. Features include reports and photographs of events, useful articles on machines from vintage classics to modern offerings, technical tales from many a shed, advertisements for spare parts and suppliers etc.
The NACC has an extensive library of owners manuals, spare parts lists, workshop manuals and many other items relating to cyclemotors, autocycles and mopeds. The club’s librarian can supply members with copies of any of these documents.
Within the UK, the NACC is recognised by the DVLA for verifying V765 applications to retain registration marks and can date machines for applications for ‘age-related’ registrations. We have a dedicated Machines Registrar to help guide members through the process.
A wide range of transfers are available from the NACC ‘s Transfer Secretary. Absolutely essential if you are restoring a machine and extremely hard to come by items these days.
Several NACC members act as “Marque Enthusiasts” and help other members with any problems or enquiries about specific makes of machine. The Marque Enthusiasts will also do their best to help non-members of the club where possible – see Club Services for contact details.
Road runs, local meetings and other events are usually organised throughout the year by the NACC, mainly arranged by its Local Sections. Unfortunately 2020 was a complete wipe-out due to the Covid-19 viral pandemic and it looks like the first part of 2021 will be the same. Keep an eye on our Events Calendar in case things change dramatically in our favour. Local Sections would meet regularly (usually in a Public House!) to plan such escapades and exchange information / parts / tall tales / insults / jokes etc.
The NACC is a member of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs which monitors any impending British or European legislation which could have an adverse effect on the use of our machines.
