Independent Reviews

This is a truly comprehensive guide and is thoroughly recommended.
On The Level

Henshaw provides enough information on the “idiosyncrasies” of Velocette singles to make it apparent that while these are great old bikes, they are not for everyone, but when it comes to considering a purchase, his book really is.

The book is probably not aimed at the dyed in the wool long-time owner but at a newcomer to Velocettes, although that is not to say even the most cynical of owners would not get something from the format of the Guide when purchasing his next bike, or be tempted to look at other books in this series.

… essential reading for anyone seeking sound advice ... Easy to follow and utterly reliable ... If you already own a Velocette single, or are thinking of doing so, £12.99 is a very small price to pay for this utterly invaluable guide.
