Hello, hope you have seen the one at HJ Pugh auction tomorrow, lot 680. Real reason for post is I am looking a petrol tank for Indian Velo either to buy or borrow to copy so tend to send a message to anyone on the net who mentions Indian Velo. Richard

Hi Richard if/when I ever get an Indian Velo I will let you know, you would be welcome to borrow the tank from it, have you tried advertising in the USA for one? Also if you do have one there are a few people in India etc that would poss make you one.
I am not having much luck .... as yet locating a bike, I have put a bid for the HJ Pugh one
best of luck
Tom

Hello...I had an Indian Velo on Craigslist last year and may have corresponded with you. I sold it with another Velo to a guy in Delaware. He buys and sells bikes and parts. I can dig up his contact if you want. Mine bike was actually brand new, but left in a garage with a bad roof. Jeb

Hi again Speirmoor, I have scanned the web, found one of their old adds and got a phone number ... it no longer works. So googled the street etc put out asking for phone/email address in Bexhill to no avail. Then found the phone number of the shop next door so I phoned them ..... only to be told the shop is now empty. So just my luck they must have stopped trading ...... Dam n Blast!

They posted a Velo on their IG earlier this month. They've listed a phone there as +44 7442 040304. I guess that the one you've tried? Also an Email [email protected] which I've already sent an enquiry

Hi again the phne number I got was 070432244891 a mobile number (cell phone) off one of their previous adverts. There is no listing on our yellow pages and council list (via web) there was no phone or email address listed, which is why I phoned the food takeaway shop next door. So I take my hat off to you, your a better Shirlock than me, well done! I will phone the number you have found in the morning I will keep you updated many thanks again, best regards Tom
PS what is an IG?

Hello again I have after some 5 emails 3 texts and phone calls, I finally got through to a guy called Nigel, he was/is the owner of Nostalgia Works. The shop has now closed, but he is still doing a small amount of trade from his home. He still has the Indian Velo but wants to keep it. Strangley enough I have been in contact with him before about his Indian Velo (not knowing who he was). At least that is another one I can cross off but it was a great try .... man thanks Tom

The other option must be that one in the Pugh auction, it does not show in the sale results but is on the cover so must be unsold so worth contacting them to see if a deal can be made.

I did bid (online) for the Pugh Auction sale, but got blown away. The auctioneer said sold at £17,500K, but the as you say is not showing on their site, so I think it was a ghost bid by the seller. Who I had spoken to prior to the Auction and made an offer which he declined. I was glad he did as on close study it was a 'rust bucket' and needed total restoring .... he had the tank painted to 'Tart it up' a little The seller is way too greedy!

Hi Guys and Dolls, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your assistance in helping me locate an Indian Velo 500.
Things look good in my search thanks to you guys it is coming to an end. I have located a fine machine .... it needs to be restored as it was an ex Barn Job, but with luck and parts availabillty it will get to be a very nice machine. With a bit of help and my skills to get it back to its former glory, it will not be concourse as I shall ride it, but it will look very, very nice, I always think if you get them too good you are frightened to use it.
Again can I say a massive Thank You to all you guys if your ever down my way get in touch and I will buy you a Pint or Two .... Cheers all.
