1968 Velocette Venom Thruxton

1968 VELOCETTE VENOM THRUXTON BACKGROUND
"Thruxton" was the name of a famous racetrack in England where endurance racing with production bikes became quite popular in the 1950s. The Venom was already Velocette's hottest street bike, loaded with exotic racing equipment from its own factory racing program. It was unheard of back then for a major motorcycle manufacturer like Velocette to offer all their top secret factory parts to the public, but they did it. The 1968 Velocette Venom Thruxton came with alloy wheels (rare in the 60s), a racing cam and special valve train, Amal TT carburetor, and a tuned exhaust megaphone. They could also be ordered in Clubman trim which included rear-sets, Monza bars and 5-gallon gas tank, as seen here. This particular bike was purchased new in Southern California and has lived its entire life in The Golden State.
