This is a beautiful example of and early post-war tele-rigid Velocette MAC. The 1951 model was the last of the Rigid rear end bikes, and was fitted with Velocette's own front forks, not the original Dowty's which had a poor reputation of continually blowing fork seals!. This model was the 1st of the Velo's to gain the all alloy engine, previous models having a cast iron barrel and head, the alloy engine remained through the rest of the production years.
This bike has been restored to pristine / show condition. It is immaculate!
It starts well and sound lovely mechanically , no smoke & no rattles.
It rides well, gears and clutch all OK, brakes OK Speedo working.
That said, this bike is not quite the finished article. It has not been used since rebuild and will need some miles under its belt plus some careful shake-down and running in jobs along the way before serious use is contemplated.
The bike comes with a V5C registration certificate.
Registration number 292 EBK (transferable)
Cosmetically, there is not much to say about this bike. It is in general pristine! The stove enamel on the frame & tinware is of a very high quality and has a deep gloss. All bright-ware inc fasteners etc is as new. Wheel rims & spokes are all as new. Tyres are as new Avon ribbed front & SM MKII rear. Saddle & pillion are as new. Exhaust is as new. The rear stand is held in place by two ordinary bolts so some q.d. finger fastenable ones are required.
It also comes with a file of historic articles and advertisements and a workshop manual.
All in all it is a thoroughly well restored bike that could be shown off as is or used and bedded in to make a thoroughly nice, lighter weight lower seat height type characterful, classic runaround!
I am able to deliver at cost or you are welcome to collect from Stockport.
