Welcome to the South Wales Section of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club

The VMCC South Wales Section primarily caters for all motorcycles and three-wheelers with a minimum age of 25 years, regardless of make or country of origin. Depending on the event, anyone riding a more modern machine is also very welcome. This is obvious if you look at the sample and variety of bikes owned by our members on the our bikes page.
The section is one of 85 sections within the VMCC and was initially formed in April 1961 in the car park of the Andoversford Hotel by three members who needed to be a section in order to receive the Team Award that they had just won in the Cotswolds Road Trial.
There was an instant election amongst the three, of Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer - and the trophy was duly handed over.
A more democratic election took place at the next official meeting.

The section meets on the dates listed on the calendar page in the Lounge. The dates are usually fortnightly on a Monday and the meetings are held in the Llanharry Workingmens Club, Elm Road, Llanharry, CF72 9HR at 7.30pm. If you're not a VMCC member but have an interest in motorcycles, then you are most welcome to come along and meet us. Our meeting attendances usually average around 30 - depending on the weather, bank holidays or if the meeting is an AGM.

We are pleased to say that from June 1993 we have been twinned with the CMB (Classic Motorcycles Belgium) and their website can be found by clicking their badge that is found above right. The twinning certificate can be seen here. We have made many good friends over the years and members from each club attend the others events.

Do feel free to 'wander' around the premises and see what the section is all about.

Personally, I always visit the Bar first (don't you?) to see if there are any 'bargains' to be had in the sales and wants. Whilst in Spares and Services you will find contact information pertaining to suppliers for motorcycle items. Additionally, here you will also find a number of General motorcycling web links that might be of interest.

The lounge is the place to go for a quiet read of any reports on runs and meetings etc. Alternatively you can check on the calendar for Section runs, meetings and other events.

The Library is open to all VMCC members and Section members alike. Here you will find Technical information, or read some of the Features articles and even catch up on some past happenings in the Archive.

In the Office you will find all the 'Fuddy Duddies' who run the Section along with any announcements that the Chairman or Secretary need to make, plus information on the VMCC, our National Club. There are also links to those other VMCC sections that have websites.

I do hope you will find something of interest and/or amusement on the site, with feedback and 'constructive' comment always welcome. Please direct correspondence to the relevant person on the Office page.
