VELOCETTE – THE GREAT VELOCETTE SHOW ALBUM 1905 – 2014
COLLECTED BY PIET TUIN
Over 500 Velocette ads and 5 posters – The collection of Piet Tuin
Published in 2015
My name is Piet Tuin. I live 40 kms north of Amsterdam in the Netherlands and was born in 1948. For more than 50 years I have been involved with Velo’s and without these unique motorcycles I believe my life would have been far less pleasant.
In my opinion each Velocette represents a work of art – like a painting by Rembrandt. I consider a Velocette to be a Rembrandt in metal.
During the 70’s I raced Velocettes in the 500cc National competition and from then on I started to collect them. Over the years I acquired a great deal of documentation about Velocette, which has resulted in my comprehensive library.
Although the preparation needed a lot of work my passion and love for Velocette helped me to complete this album”.
The book is used, but it is in very good condition. Unfortunately, the 5 posters, which were added as separate supplements to this book, are missing. The text on the back is printed twice, see photo 6. Hard cover, 540 pages, text mainly English and Dutch.
