Beschreibung:

The third of Velocette’s overhead-valve, high-camshaft, single-cylinder designs, the 500cc MSS was announced in 1935. The first of these new models had been the 250cc MOV of 1933, which was joined for 1934 by a long-stroke 350cc version - the MAC. In creating the MSS, Veloce kept to the basic design, combining the MAC’s 96mm stroke with a larger bore to create its new ‘500’. The MSS engine went into a new frame derived from that of the racing KTT. The model disappeared from Veloce Limited’s range in 1948 while the company concentrated on the LE, reappearing in 1954 with a new swinging-arm frame and Hall Green’s own telescopic front fork. The engine too was updated, gaining ‘square’ bore and stroke dimensions of 86x86mm along with an alloy cylinder barrel and ’head. This MSS has covered only some 14,690 miles since its restoration to a high standard circa 2002 and further benefits from an engine rebuild undertaken in 2010 by Vulcan Services (invoice on file). Carefully maintained, ‘RYD 68’ has mainly been used for touring the hills and dales of Derbyshire and Staffordshire, taking in a couple of rallies each year. Offered with sundry invoices, current road fund licence, Swansea V5C document and a quantity of old tax discs and MoTs (most recent expired 2012), the machine is described as in generally good cosmetic condition with excellent mechanicals. Panniers, an alternator, Boyer electronic ignition and heated handlebar grips are the only notified deviations from factory specification.
