1932 VELOCETTE 348CC KTT (LOT 389)
REGISTRATION NO. VY 3384
FRAME NO. KX4107
ENGINE NO. KTT346
The Velocette name was rolled out for the first time in 1913, after earlier models had carried the 'Veloce' title. Velocette's first TT victory would not be until the junior race of 1926 with Alec Bennett aboard the firm's radical overhead-camshaft four-stroke Model K, which had joined the range in 1925. Having been firmly committed to two-stroke engines up to this point, the Bennett victory sealed Velocette's change of tack, and thenceforth the company's future would forever be linked mainly to four-strokes. Other OHC models were produced before the KTT appeared in 1928 and attempted to further capitalise on the firm's racing success. The idea is a now-familiar one of the over-the-counter racer. 'VY 3384' was purchased by the vendor in 2007 in the present condition and was used by him for sprints and hill climbs until 2017. No work except basic maintenance has been done during that time on the bike, which has performed faultlessly. However, due to his advancing years, he has reluctantly decided that he must retire from competition. Unused now for three years, the bike will require safety checks and a modicum of re-commissioning prior to use by a new owner. Lubricant is Castrol R40. The machine has benefited from addition of bottom frame rails, which helps to prevent the well-known KTT problem of frame breakage. Also of note is the 4-speed gearbox and hairpin valve springs. Documentation comprises an old-type V5C, together with a continuation RF60 buff log book, which records that the engine was previously KTT 343 which was then changed to KTT309. A subsequent change to the present KTT346 obviously occurred at a later date.

£12,000 - 16,000
€13,000 - 18,000

As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
