Lot Details
1958 Velocette 500cc Venom
Registration no. NDB 297
Frame no. RS 10985
Engine no. VM 2231
The 'Venom' is everyone's favourite Velocette, the punchy 'single' having a long ancestry back to the 1930s, excellent road manners and that air of tradition which wins respect. Capable of about as much development as any rider wants, even beyond 'Thruxton' standards, the 'Venom' owner can call on years of expertise and an excellent supply of spares. NDB 297, Liverpool-registered in mid-1958, has been owned by the same enthusiast since at least 1983, though details of use and of work carried out are not available. In rather non-standard form but complete with V5 and RF.60 Log-book, it will be a sound basis for a rebuild to a new owner's specification.
