Old Manchester 17 Motor Cycle Club  Newsletters


These were preserved and kindly loaned to the club for reproduction and distribution here by Paul Tootall  from 1965 June to 1982 April, and Ken Roberts 1982 April to 1999 Nov - the very last newsletter published. if you have any other old newsletters, pictures, films, reports, results etc that you would like to share please contact us so we can arrange to have them scanned. Click here to contact us.

Please click on the newsletter you want and it will open a .pdf file of that particular newsletter. Feel free to keep a copy and use as you wish all the club asks is that you please credit Manchester 17 MCC when used in any way. Thanks and happy memories / research.

If you send in a short description of the content of any of these newsletters  - I will add them to the list to help others find what they are interested in.
