On Sale Today: The Velocette Vogue was 'meant' to appeal to everybody.
The Vogue was supposed to be a luxurious step above basic transport.
Fully enclosed in fibreglass bodywork, with windscreen, leg shields & later panniers as standard.
It addressed a big problem for British riders when riding in the rain.
All the bodywork helped shelter the rider & made the machine much easier to keep clean.
Americans didn’t like it, and the market for small, under powered basic commuter bikes was shrinking rapidly.
With all the bodywork & accoutrements the Vogue was heavy. Too heavy for the anaemic 8hp 192cc water-cooled side valve twin engine.
The same unit that powered the 1950's-era Velocette LE.
Wide-open, they could barely make 60mph & cruising at anything more than about 50mph was out of the question.
Regardless of all this, the Velocette Vogue is really a beautiful piece of work.
Finely crafted fiberglass panels fit nicely together to make a lovely, yet functional shape. Engine access is via removable panels with Dzus fasteners.
Our 1966 Vogue is a Barn Find that is totally unmolested. We are selling as a spares or repair. Various body panels and parts included in the sale. It would take very little to have her up and running.
Only 381 bikes were made and I am sure there isn’t many others that can be as original as this.
Viewing by appointment only. Finance can be arranged by a third party. Office hours are Monday to Friday (Saturdays and Sundays can be arranged) 8am to 5pm. If you would like to know more then please call Craig on the details below.
