Factory Records

Following the generous gift of all the original factory records held by the science museum we now hold the surviving records of a very large part of the once mighty British motorcycle industry. We hold Ariel, BSA, Douglas Vespa, Gilera (c 1971-4), Levis, Norton, Royal Enfield up to 1920, Scott, Triumph, Velocette pre RS frames and late Zenith.

From the following factories:

  • Ariel,
  • BSA,
  • Douglas Vespa,
  • Garelli
  • Gilera
  • Levis,
  • Norton,
  • Royal Enfield Up to 1920,
  • Scott,
  • Triumph,
  • Velocette (pre RS frames) and late Zenith

We do not photocopy any of the factory records

If you would like the full factory record, we will need a side view photograph of the machine and either rubbings or photographs of the engine and frame numbers.

The cost is £37.50 (£25.00 if a member) typed on a certificate plus £2.50 postage for overseas.

You can pay by card, cheque, postal order (made payable to VMCC Ltd) or by PayPal.
