E-Start Velo   Text & Photos, Tom Davenport

This is a gorgeous, functional, ridden bike.

The photo at the left shows this Thruxton last fall at the BSAOC North Coast Ride. It ran hard all day, didn't miss a beat, and doesn't leak. The Harley electric start works, too! And it goes pretty fast for an overhead valve 500 single.

We hope the owner-builder will furnish some detail description about this and other interesting bikes he's involved with. Stay tuned!
