    Background: From Honeybourne to Banbury and back, through the Cotswolds, and all on veteran of vintage motor cycles. It was the recently-held 12th annual Banbury run of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club.

    From Honeybourne Aerodrome, riders got away to a timed start. The machine in the run varied in cost between five pounds and five shillings - all of them kept in use by the loving care of enthusiasts.

    One of the earliest models: a 1960 Triumph, and, showing that motor scooters are not so modern as they seem - a two-seater Skootamota of 1919.
