Velocette is the name given to motorcycles that were made by Veloce Ltd, in Birmingham. One of several motorcycle manufacturers in Birmingham, Velocette was a small, family-owned firm, selling far fewer hand-built motorcycles than the giant BSA, Norton or Triumph concerns. After the Second World War, the company sought to capture what it saw as a developing need for personal transport and created the LE model (for 'Little Engine'). This was a 149cc water-cooled flat-twin with side-valves, a pressed steel frame, telescopic forks and swinging arm. It saw widespread adoption by British police forces for urban patrol.

This is reported to be one of the ex-police force examples in average condition but thought to running well. It has formed part of a museum collection for a number of years now and remains complete. Offered at no reserve, it will find a new home with no difficulty.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
