Congratulations to Mike Jongblood for winning Bike of the Month with his 1963 Velocette Venon Clubman. Mike has been a member of this group since it's inception. To many of us he's Mr. Velocette.
This Venom Clubman was bought new by Phil Shwartz. Phil put 30,000 miles on it during the first 30 years of it's life. Phil passed away in the mid 90's and willed the bike to Mike. Mike went through the entire bike to get into perfect riding condition.
Originally the bike had a factory Avon fairing, which Mike removed after a run-in with a dog.
World Record Holder
According to Mike, the Vellocette 500cc Single currently holds the record for averaging 100 mph for a 24 hour period set with this model in 1963.
