Up for auction is a rare 1962 Cotton Vulcan.The Vulcan is believed to be the only one in Australia, and one of a handful left in the world. (see attached letter and article). The bike has previous Qld rego. history. Lights, indicators, horn all working.The bike is currently fitted with a 250cc Villiers engine, and qualifies for period 3 (pre'62) racing. Engine starts easily and runs strong, 4 speed gearbox and cdi ignition fitted. Has the original Cotton Armstrong leading link forks. Currently fitted with Honda twin leading shoe wheels with Dunlop roadmaster GP tyres, I can substitute original British full width hub, cush drive wheels (see photo) if you prefer. Wheels will be fitted with tyres. This bike could be used for almost anything, pre '65 VMX, ISDT replica, period 3 Road Racing, Classic British Club plater or with original engine a unique Museum display. The original 197cc engine (see photo) needs a little end piston bearing and some minor assembly. Gaskets supplied.There are quite a few spares including new old stock for both the engines. These will be offered to the winning bidder only at extra cost if required. Parts include:

I am selling as one lot, but I am willing to seperate if enough interest. If you require the bike without the 250 engine, and with original engine fittedI can substitute same. I can also seperate spares if not required. just let me know your requirements. This is a great opportunity to own a unique rare English bike at an affordable price. Don't miss out!
