Running restoration for this winter. This bike is complete and we have had her running! She is a kick start model, not hand pull. Locally registered with history but not taxed or mot'd. The LE Velocette with its horizontally opposed water cooled twin cylinder engine and all enclosing bodywork was launched in 1948 as a response readdress criticisms that motorcycles were noisy and dirty, and to a large extent it was successful in this respect however its initial performance was somewhat pedestrian. As a result the motor was eventually increased to a displacement of 192ccs and the hand-operated starter and gearchange were replaced with foot-activated mechanisms. It became a popular mount for the police forces, but sadly was not an enormous hit with the motorcycling public, and the concept was destined to enter the annals of motorcycling history.
