Congratulations to Larry Horn of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1955 Velocette MSS. Larry has owned this bike for 30 years and rode it to our meet today.
Bought as a basket case, this bike has been a work in progress since Larry bought it. The paint job was done three years ago by Larry himself including the hand laid gold leaf pinstriping.
The engine has gone through some major modifications. It has a squash band combustion chamber with a dual spark plugs. Also changed was the original Amal carburator for a more modern Mikuni. Rolling on Akron rims, the entire package is very nice.
Larry usually rides his 1949/50 Norvin. His Norton framed Vincent powered bike. Both of Larry's bikes are always croud favorites.
Thank you Larry for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our May Gallery.
