The IVAN RHODES visit to ALFORD, ABERDEENSHIRE – HEAR THE ROARER ROAR!!!
HURRY HURRY HURRY only a few tickets left!!!

We have now finalised the details for the illustrated Ivan Rhodes presentation on Saturday 22nd May at 2pm, at the Grampian Transport Museum, Alford.

The Velocette ROARER was acquired by Ivan in the early 1980s, and the main job that might have fazed most of us, was a full engine construction – not just a rebuild. Ivan and his son Grahame used old magazine articles and sketches to work out the measurements and fine details, to enable each component to be manufactured.

Ivan will present a talk about the whole painstaking six-year process, which will be accompanied by photographs to illustrate each step of the rebuild.

He will also have full use of the circuit at Alford, so not only will you get to inspect the famous supercharged "Roarer" and the "Model O" at close quarters, but he will also be firing them both up for your delectation.

Tickets are £10 per person, which will include light refreshments, and can be issued either via email or post, upon receipt of your cheque.

Don't miss this opportunity to see and hear these one-off bikes!

Please PM me for details of who to send your cheque to.

Closing date Mon 17th May. No refunds will be given after this date.

If you require accommodation, there is a campsite in Alford, just at the back of the Museum - http://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/caravan ... alford.asp and if you prefer a little more comfort, B&B is available at ‘Bydand’, Alford 01975 563613, ‘Macbrae Lodge’, Mongarrie 019755 63421, ‘Frog Marsh’, Mossat 019755 71355.

If you require any further information, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for supporting this unique event, looking forward to seeing you there.

Gorgeous Biker Chick.
