1934 Velocette 349cc MAC
Registration no. WO 7967
Frame no. M474
Engine no. MAC 92
In 1933 Veloce Limited augmented its overhead-camshaft range with an overhead-valve 250 - the MOV. The newcomer’s engine was a ‘high camshaft’ design with enclosed valves, and in addition the compact and sprightly machine featured a four-speed gearbox equipped with the company’s new foot-change mechanism. The following year an overhead-valve 350 built along MOV lines appeared; this was the long-stroke MAC, subsequently bored out to create the 500 MSS. By lengthening the stroke it was possible to use the MOV’s top end almost unaltered, thus saving on production costs. The 250’s cycle parts were likewise retained for the MAC, which with its greater power yet scarcely increased weight, was a worthy rival to Hall Green’s more expensive overhead-camshaft K-Series models. This very early MAC was purchased by its late owner, Douglas Law in 1967 from a Mr Cecil Charrett, of Tolworth, Surrey and last taxed and MoT’d in 1992. Since then it has been partially dismantled and is now offered for restoration. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with old-style continuation logbook (issued 1953); 1967 bill of sale; a quantity of old tax discs/MoTs; and Swansea V5 registration document.
