** SOLD ** 1956 Velocette MSS 500


1956 Velocette MSS 500

The vendor has supplied the following information.

Current owner since 2001 who bought it from a VOC member in Keighley. The bike has had light use since then and runs and is an easy starter (the vendor informs us of last running the Velocette around 3 months ago).

The owners interests have moved onto lightweights and now is the time to let the MSS go to someone who will continue to ride the machine.

There is some history and receipts with the bike including the renovation of the engine by Velo specialist Alec Swallow in 2000.

The originality speaks for itself and is the strength of the machine. In short, an increasingly rare opportunity to own a piece of fast appreciating British motorcycling history.

Engine No. MSS12003

Frame No. RS3872

Gearbox No. 12-2387

These details are correct for the bike which was first registered 21st March 1956.

V5 present and the bike is currently SORN and is MOT and Tax exempt.
