The Velocette Thruxton was the high-performance variation of the
500 cubic centimeter OHC Venom, introduced in 1958. It is also the
most prized, as only 1,108 were built from 1965 through to the end
of the company in 1971. The model was named after the 1964 Thruxton
500 mile race victory. In 1967, Manxman Neil Kelly won the 500
production class at the Isle f Man on a Thruxton. This bike
features a tuned engine, big valve cylinder head, Amal GP
carburetor, clip on handle bars, rear sets, and twin leading shoe
front brake. Most Thruxtons were finished in black with gold
pinstripes, however, this example is finished in the optional and
handsome blue, with a silver tank and gold striping. The owner
states that it is a running example, however we did not attempt to
start it up as it appears there is a fuel line not hooked up.
