VEC Volksfest Cruise

This evening I went on the Volksenthusiasts Club (VEC) Volksfest cruise. This is the precursor to the Volksfest event happening on Sunday at Port Adelaide. The cruise met at the Botanical Gardens and went for a run through the city before finishing up for pizza and coffee. I was fortunate enough to hitch a ride with Fin, a fellow razor owner, who let me ride in his razor, so at least I got to cruise in style. :)

The turnout was excellent, despite a very heavy downpour just an hour before the kick off time. Fortunately the weather held out and didn't put off the cruisers from attending.

 

The range of rides was pretty varied, with some new just finished rides such as the white and candy red splitty, some stock, some custom, some ratty, and even a new style emerging with an oval bug with exausts through the fenders - definately something new happening there.

it's a bit hard to make out in the pics, but it's a nice geometric pattern with the three cornered Celtic knot in it (called a Triquetra). I've posted another pic that shows the pattern a bit better. it was very well done - subtle but also distinct, very eye catching. I'm going to try to find out who painted it - would love them to do my bus. Apart from the graphics the rest of the paint job was also spot on too.
