Founders Day 2012 report

I was invited by the ever supportive Vintage and veteran to run a display and sketch on their stand at Founders Day at Stanford Hall on the 2nd September. Founders day has a very extensive bike jumble and is well worth a visit. I had a great day sketching the ever changing roster of bikes Vintage and Veteran have, as well as chatting to people and drinking a lot of tea. Here are the from the day:

1913 Rover TT

(ink sketch)
These Rovers are few and far between these days and this is a fantastic example. I particularly liked the  way the oil pump is incorporated into the fuel tank.
 For more photos of this bike please go to the Vintage and Veteran website:

1912 FN Single

(ink sketch)

All original condition and in running and road legal condition. I fell in love with this bike and would have snapped it up if I had the cash, as it has so much history and character there is no need to touch it.
 For more photos of this bike please go to the Vintage and Veteran website:


Here are a couple more of the bikes that were on display:

 1927 Triumph Model N


1903 Royal Enfield

 Billed as the oldest running Royal Enfield this is certainly a sight to behold.

The following weekend Vintage and Veteran invited me to Beaulieu to do more of the same, report to follow.....
