Chris et al,
Glad you're keeping this one alive. I recently purchased a few of photos from British Only. These are 5"x7" glossy color photos which, I believe, came from the factory to be used as promos. One is a drive side of a Fury and the other two of an early (non-teardrop primary) '62 750 Interceptor. What is interesting about the Interceptor is that it is presented in a deep blue, not Chinese Red (which is the only color ever mentioned in early ads and parts books). These could be restored bikes than Ken G. from B.O. snapped in the '70s, BUT I also received a few scans (not as clear, unfortunately) from ex-George Helm's stock which show the same Fury as well as a VAX! Why George would have these I couldn't say, unless they were ex-factory promo material. Anyway, as seen in the attached photo - and very interesting to me - is the solo seat edition of the VAX. Never seen this listed as an option, but, if these are factory shots, I would presume it was at least toyed with as an option. Also note the straight-through "Westerner" exhaust pipe on the Fury (I believe listed in the parts catalog as an optional extra). I don't have access to the clearer 750/Fury pictures at the moment (I'm at work, they're at home), but here's the one of the VAX and Fury, and another of the Fury and the blue '62 750.

I have edited my post from 3 days ago. I thought a sample photo on the front page of the REOC site was a link to more photos. Not so - it is a teaser to show what is coming. The archive is still in the early stages and it is hoped there will be more to show over the winter. My clumsy effort at marketing was way ahead of production.

If you have material that will interest other enthusiasts, please safeguard the information on the paper by making copies and sharing the copies around. Storage in multiple sites is a sure way to ensure survival. Paper and photos will eventually crumble; a digital file on thumb drives and CD's will last longer. Until the archive is operating, share the file copies here.

Just a cool incidental photo. Just had someone send a photo of his VAX from the late '60s (before being shipped off to Vietnam). On his tour, his brother supposedly sold off his Fury, unfortunately, and no photo evidence of it exists. Check out those mufflers!
