1956 Velocette LE
Rebuilt engine; powder-coated chassis; new wheel rims and tyres; 'on the handle'
Purchased and restored by its previous owner, this fine LE was reregistered in July 2012 just before it came into the hands of the new owner. A barn-find, it had been stripped and the frame powder coated. The wheel rims had been replaced and it came with fresh tyres.
An LE Velo club dating certificate indicates that it was sold on 30th March 1956 to a Mr Kuwsk through Wyverns of Weston Super Mare. He paid extra for the two-tone paintwork in blue over grey.
Since purchase, our vendor has rebuilt the engine, bored to +020" with new pistons, big end bearings, seals etc and new clutch plates. It has also be rewired with a modern voltage regulator/ rectifier.
In super condition throughout, if you have ever fancied trying one of these charismatic, over-engineered machines, this would be a very good place to start.
