And now for something, well, different. Yes, the owner states that the motorcycle you see here is a Velocette Venom Clubman. And no, it doesn't look quite the way you'd expect a Clubman to look. But there's more to the story.

An unrestored, all-original (except tires, oil lines and a new Amal carburetor) bike, the current owner is only the second owner, and he states that the bike came out of the the crate optioned this way with taller handlebars, a small  scrambler/endurance tank, and Thruxton forks, twin-leading-shoe front brake, and Thruxton mudguards and stays. It does not have the rearsets or the Thruxton-style Clubman swept back exhaust you'd expect. Interesting, eh?
