Lot Details
Property of a deceased's estate
c.1939 Velocette 348cc KTS MkII Project
Registration no. BV 9436
Frame no. MS3274 (see text)
Engine no. KSS8742
By the end of the 1920s, Veloce's range of K-Series roadsters boasted variations on the theme that included Normal, Sports, Super Sports, Touring, Economy and twin-port models. Introduced in 1925, the KSS was the Super Sports version while the KTS tourer employed the same overhead-camshaft engine in virtually identical cycle parts, differences being confined mainly to mudguard style and wheel sizes. Introduced for the 1936 season, the MkII version of the KSS/KTS represented a major redesign, featuring many improvements including a new aluminium-alloy cylinder head with enclosed valve gear, plus the cradle frame and heavyweight Webb forks of the new MSS. This incomplete and partly dismantled KTS MkII features the alloy cylinder head with enclosed valve gear first seen at the 1935 Motor Cycle Show. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. It should be noted that the frame number stamping is unclear and open to more than one interpretation.
