1962 Velocette Venom CLUBMAN

The Venom was already a fairly low-volume bike, but the Clubman option was even more rare. Just 36 Venom Clubmans were built in 1962. The Clubman package included rearset footpegs and controls, early-style upswept exhaust, TLS (Twin Leading Shoe) front drum brake with cooling scoop, Dunlop shouldered rims and lightweight alloy fenders. The 1962 Velocette Venom Clubman pictured here was displayed at the 2017 Clubman Show in San Jose CA, where these pictures were taken.
