Veloce Ltd’s Percy Goodman-designed, overhead-cam Model K first appeared in 1924. Of 348cc, the new engine employed a single overhead camshaft driven by a vertical shaft, and was unusual in having a very narrow crankcase, an arrangement determined by the existing transmission and frame design but which made for a stiff crankshaft assembly. By the end of the 1920s, Veloce’s range of K-Series roadsters boasted a host of variations on the theme that included Normal, Sports, Super Sports, Touring, Economy and twin-port models. Believed last taxed for the road in 1954, as recorded in the old-style logbook issued that same year, this KNS would appear to been acquired relatively recently by Bob Samson. Offered for restoration, the machine is currently dismantled, though it is hoped that most parts will have been identified by time of sale. Included with it are the aforementioned old-style logbook, factory instruction book, Velocette manual (Pearson), tank transfers (x2) and Swansea V5C registration document.
