A lovely green Velo

I was very interested to see the article about the green Velocette MAC restored by Derek Manders in OBM (January), and initially thought it was mine!

If you are able to forward it, I thought Derek might be interested in a photograph of my own 1955 green MAC which I bought almost six years ago.

John Hoskins bought his 1955 green Velocette MAC almost six years ago, and finds it a lovely bike to ride

It’s a lovely bike, and was originally green when it left the Velocette factory, but it’s not willow green, because in the past someone repainted it in darker Brunswick green as per Eddie Stobart.

John Hoskins,

I have forwarded your email, and the photo, to Derek – Ed.
