In 1933 Veloce Limited augmented its overhead-camshaft range with an overhead-valve 250 - the MOV. The newcomer’s engine was a ‘high camshaft’ design with enclosed valves, and the compact and sprightly machine featured a four-speed gearbox equipped with the company’s new foot-change mechanism. The following year an overhead-valve 350 built along MOV lines appeared. This was the long-stroke MAC, subsequently bored out to create the 500 MSS. Velo’s overhead-valve trio continued much as before in the immediately post-war years, with rigid frames and - initially - Webb girder forks. Previously registered ‘DMN 141’ in the Isle of Man, this incomplete MAC has been in the current, elderly owner’s possession for some considerable time. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with previous-owner and IoM Licensing Authority correspondence.
