Or what started on a holiday beach ended with eating a cheese roll on a test track!
Swallow Gadabout scooter
These little Villiers powered scooters were used by some police forces and some even had a sidecar, all designed and made by the Swallow Coach building company.
More information and pictures have come to light in the past year, and hopefully, by the end of this year, a fully restored example should be on display.
You can see more pictures and information in our ‘Machine Profiles’ section. More photo’s and info added in 2011
Uttoxeter Show is GO again
Following a very favourable response from group members at last year’s show, it has been decided that we enter the 5th Uttoxeter Classic Motorcycle Show & autojumble on 2nd. & 3rd July. This is a clash of dates but should not affect the machines at either show. Our stand is in the Premier Hall of the Racecourse. Only about 12 miles from Stafford. Contact Gerry.
Web Site Update - May 2011
This site has now produced using Serif WebPlus X4, the latest version. This has been used to revise the drop-down menu bars, and the search box is now on every page, as it the revision date. Photo Gallery pages are much improved, with more content and pictures of machines. And you can now search from every page.
This may have created some new problems, so if you do find some, please contact the webmaster.
Another full and fun weekend at the Stafford Show Ground, but which one to choose. We exhibit at the International Classic Bike Show in April, and the Classic Mechanics Show in October each year. Each time we try to show a least one machine that has not been displayed before. See article in Newsbeat.
Just about 12 Miles from Stafford is Uttoxeter Racecourse. In July 2010 we decided to put on a small stand to see what it was like. Take a look...
