A long-term member of the LE Velo Club, the current vendor has owned this late example for 24 years, during which time it had covered approximately 2,000 trouble free miles. However, while the Velo's overall 'time warp' condition would suggest that the mileage reading is genuine, it cannot be confirmed. The machine is fitted with an original Avon handlebar fairing and original Dunlop chromed wheel rims. Latterly the rear tyre was replaced, the old tyre and tube being original Dunlops, suggesting they were factory fittings. The old tyre and tube are included in the sale together with some original spares (in the panniers). Having stood for some years, the machine will require re-commissioning before returning to the road and it should be noted that there is no battery fitted. Also included with the machine is a large cardboard box containing a quantity of LE club literature and, most significantly, a box of mainly original documents including the original green logbook, the original bill of sale/invoice, the guarantee card, various old tax discs and MoT certificates, and the V5C registration document.
