Anyone help with this?

Hi. My father had a 1937 Velocette 350 MAC and I re-registered it and rode it for a year or two in the early 70’s, dad later sold it and I was wondering if you think it would be possible to track it down through your club?

It was sold in the early 70’s from Ludbrook Ave, South Caulfield, Melbourne, Victoria. Condition was average and the only identifier is that the seat had some foam and black vinyl sown over the original seat. Also it had some some brushed on black paint.
Not much to go on and maybe very slim chance but if I could try that would be good.

MEMBERS MACHINE DATABASE FORM

This link is to a Data Base form for VOCA members to submit details on their machines.
Hopefully one day we can produce a modest booklet or similar.
The committee decided to have it also made available on VOCA website so everyone can fill it out and return it to Dominic so he can create the database – you can do this online and do not have to add a signature to send it in.

Of course all details are strictly general in nature and no identification of the location of the machines is being requested other than which state it is located in.
