Velocettes were produced by Veloce Ltd in Hall Green, Birmingham between 1904 and 1971. Velocette was a family-owned firm selling almost as many hand-built motorcycles during its lifetime as the mass-produced machines from the likes of Triumph and Norton. Veloce, while small, was a great technical innovator and many of its patented designs are commonplace on motorcycles today including the positive-stop foot shift and swinging arm rear suspension with hydraulic dampers. Renowned for the quality of its products, the company was "always in the picture" in international motorcycle racing from the mid 1920s through to the 1950s, culminating in two 350cc World Championship titles and its legendary, and still-unbeaten, record of averaging over 100mph for 24 hours on a 500cc single cylinder machine. The KSS featured an overhead camshaft engine that was quite rare in a road bike at the time and formed the basis of the chammpionship winning KTTs.

This 1936 KSS was bought by the vendor in 1996 and lovingly restored by him over the next few years with an extensive paperwork folder of receipts and technical information documenting the process. A stunning looking bike with its large fishtail silencer and gloss black finish, it was very much ahead of its time with its OHC top end but proved to be a very expensive bike to manufacture. Unfortunately, due to ill health the vendor can no longer ride so it’s time to let someone else have the pleasure. Not run for a couple of years it will need some recommissioning and comes supplied with the aforementioned paperwork file of invoices and technical information, a few old MOTs, various manuals and a current V5C.
