I saw this old Villiers bike at the 2016 Gathering of the Norton’s, it screamed monochrome to me.  I hope you like it.  My contribution to The Weekend in Black and White April 28, 2016.

    There’s nothing like a classic bike to make a good monochrome. This is great!

  5. The Villier’s two stroke motor was used in many light weight motorcycles, mostly English, and was eventually bought by Norton. I would love to see the rest of this motorcycle. It must be from the mid-1960s. It makes a great b&w photo.

  9. Wayne, I did not realize you were into classic motorcycles. Your G11 looks terrific. My roommate back in the late 1950s had one, and I thought it was terrific. My first bike was a Royal Enfield 500cc, single scrambles bike. It was fast, but not reliable. Learned about bikes from it. I’ve got a BMW R51/3 with Steib sidecar sitting in my garage. Is that Villiers motor in a small Norton?
