"Give them a big hand"

The Bean C.C., no matter how small its own membership, has a happy knack of enticing an excellent entry to its meetings. Its Second Summer Rally at Bracknell Sports Stadium on July 21st had something like 90 entries of veteran to p.v.t. cars if historic commercials and vintage motorcycles are included. The event had some unusual items—the excellent grass arena was not open to the public until...

Continental Notes

Fragments on forgotten makes

No. 33-The Bean. The Bean Car Club may not thank me for calling the Bean a "forgotten make" but I am sure they will know what I mean! It was a make intended to be built in mass-produced quantities but which never really made the grade. A.

Chain Chatter

By "Carrozzino" Having dealt at some length last month on the international aspect of motor-cycling sport for the coming year, it will make a change to view some of the home activities. Having put the road-burner, with its 2-1/2-in. ground clearance, away for a time, I did the rounds on a Douglas-Vespa, which served more than adequately during a month's use.
