1958 Velocette 349cc MAC
Registration no. HEP 725
Frame no. RS10138
Engine no. MAC25076
After the First World War, Velocette were firmly committed to two-stroke machines, only turning to four strokes in the mid nineteen twenties with production of the Model K, their first overhead camshaft machine, which appeared in 1925. They continued with other overhead cam models, but did not produce a conventional overhead valve engine until the introduction of the first of the M-series models, the MOV, in 1933. The second of the M-series, all of which featured the high camshaft layout, was the MAC, which arrived later in 1933. It provided a little more power, whilst still catering to the public need for belt-tightening in the austerity of the early 1930s. Its success was demonstrated by its long production run, which saw it through to 1960. Indeed, in one year (1953) it was the only single cylinder model in the Velocette range, appearing with the LE. In 1954 it acquired the swinging arm frame. 'HEP 725' was purchased by the deceased owner in 1991 (receipt on file). It was MoT'd at that time, and may have been used for a short period, but has been dry garage-stored and not used since approximately 1993. It will, therefore, need careful re-commissioning and safety checks prior to use on the road by a new owner. Documentation comprises a current V5C, an old V5C, the original RF60 buff log book from 1958, two old MoT certificates, the aforementioned purchase receipt, and sundry papers. The machine is presently on SORN.
