Launched in 1948, the Velocette LE addressed the criticisms most often levelled at motorcycles - that they were noisy, dirty and needed special clothing to ride - achieving impressive levels of silence, comfort and practicality. The unusual-looking LE was a big success with police forces, for whom its attributes were more important than its appearance, gaining the sobriquet 'Noddy Bike' as a result. First registered to the Metropolitan Police and sold into private ownership in the early 1970s, this LE was restored some years ago and has been on museum display since its acquisition in 2002 (purchase invoice on file). The machine comes with owner's handbook, service manual, spare parts list, two expired MoTs (most recent 2003), old/current Swansea V5/V5C documents and its original green logbook.
