The Dreadnought motorcycle is a unique machine constructed by pioneer British motorcyclist Harold "Oily" Karslake and now kept in the care of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club. The Dreadnought name comes from the turn of the century name for the first of the Royal Navy’s heavily armoured battleships or "Dreadnoughts". In the first London to Brighton old motorcycle Run in 1930, the Dreadnought was the first bike to start the event and on that occasion it was ridden by George Brough, then the manufacturer of the famous Brough Superior motorcycles. Picture taken at the 2008 Festival of 1000 Bikes.
