Wessex Veteran & Vintage Section Library

The Section members collectively have hundreds of books at home on their bookshelves gathering dust.

Our Chair Ian Clarke has come up with a way that these books can be used for their intended purpose and inform and spread knowledge once again  and The Wessex V&V Section Library has been created.

Frank Cropp has kindly agreed to become the Section Librarian and administer the Library.

Section members pay a partly refundable deposit of £1 to borrow a book from the Library and upon return receive 50p back. The remaining 50p goes into Section funds.

Initial Book Titles available to borrow are:

AJS of Wolverhampton by S.J. Mills

Bob McIntyre: The Flying Scot by Mick Walker

Fast Bikes by Igloo Books

Geoff Duke “in pursuit of perfection” by Geoff Duke

Great British Motorcycles of the Fifties by Bob Currie

Greeves by Rob Carrick and Mick Walker

Haynes Publishing - The First Fifty Years 1960-2010 by Jon Pressnell

Minimal Motoring: from Cyclecar to Microcar  by David Thirlby

One Hundred Years of Japanese Motorcycles by Adrian Pavey

Riding Old Motorcycles by  Reg Eyre

Sunbeam S7 & S8 Super Profile by Robert Cordon Champ

Velocette Flat Twins by Roy Bacon

“What if I had never tried it” Valentino Rossi the Autobiography


The list of book titles will be added to as time progresses.

Please contact Frank Cropp or email admin@vmccwessexveteranandvintage.co.uk to borrow a book from the list or if you have books you could make available to fellow Section members to borrow.

Books requested for loan will be brought to the next Club meeting.
