Registration no. HXT 784
Frame no. MAC1006
Engine no. MAC1006
By 1946, Velocette were retreating from the cost of making their KSS ohc model and filled the gap in the range by tweaking their short-lived, post-war MOV 250 into the almost identical MAC by increasing the stroke. First marketed in 1946, by 1947 the model was Velocette's only 350, apart from the racing KTT. Fitted with the innovative Dowty 'Oleomatic' tele-forks and a then-standard rigid back-end, this well-liked machine saw Velocette into the 1950s. 'HXT 784' is a matching-number example in sound condition from long-term ownership and will offer an inexpensive introduction to the undoubted pleasures of Velocette ownership, with the backing of the Velocette Club's activities if so desired and an excellent spares availability.
