John Favill - Motorcycle Genius at CTM - 20th Sept

21 September 2011

We were extremely lucky in securing John Favill - Pioneering motorcycle engineer formerly of Norton, Villiers and Harley-Davidson, who, on a whirlwind visit from his home in Wisconsin - USA,  gave an evening presentation about his amazing career in motorcycle engineering development.

The audience were enthralled with his account of his engineering times at both Norton and Harley-Davidson, and the Q&A session went on for over an hour.

Coventry Transport Museum is very grateful to both John Favill and author Mick Duckworth for making the event a great success.

* Our next guest speaker evening is with intrepid motorcycle traveller - Austin Vince on Monday 14th November. Tickets are available now via our Forthcoming Events diary from our home page.
