1950 Velocette MAC 350cc.


The lovely people at 'The Bike Shed' have just done a feature on the Velo, check it out: http://thebikeshed.cc/2014/06/10/eclectic-motorcycles-velocette/


There is also a picture of it in the next issue of '100% Biker' and a feature in the following issue.


It is on the Bike Shed classified and is for sale else where, so reserve the right to remove at any time.

 

I’ve owned this beautiful bike since 2009.  When I bought it the engine was running, but the rest of the bike was a project.  It was already red, but as you can see I’ve run with it.  The idea has been to try retaining it’s original character and keep it looking unrestored and quirky. 

 

I’ve done a lot to the bike, wiring, lining the tank and replacing worn out parts. An expert, notably Clive Repik in South Devon, has overhauled and cleaned the engine, and sorted the difficult clutch.

 

The plunger rear is from a BSA and it has an unusual protective casting under the engine, but my philosophy has been ‘if it’s sound then it stays’, also ‘if there is no oil under it, there’s no oil in it’.

 

This bike will need constant tinkering and occasional use; it’s not a commuting bike, it’s a hobby!

 

No MOT needed, no road TAX to pay.

 

I’d like it to go to someone who will allow it to evolve and ideally will use it on the ‘wall of death’!

 

You’re welcome to come and view the bike, it’s kept at my workshop in South Bristol.


This is a completely one off bike, an unrestored rarity!


Please don't make any silly offers of £1,000 less than the asking price.


I have a van, so can deliver locally, but would have to agree a charge for any distance.

 

Not really interested in getting involved in shipping abroad, but quite happy for the buyer to sort themselves.


£200 to be payed to secure the sale and balance in cash on collection.


Happy bidding.
