We are very excited to make this move as the business has grown and we can now accommodate more work and be able to restore, rebuild and service more of your Velocette motorbikes. We have a new member of staff to the ...

We have just become stockists of SHORAI batteries. These are claimed to be the World's Lightest, strongest Powersports batteries and are used by many top race teams. We had been looking for an alternative to the sealed/AGM 12V batteries that we had been using with the Alton electric starter kits that we were fitting to customers bikes as we were never that happy with either having the larger 12v battery on open display on the battery platform, ...

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and are slowly getting back out on some bike runs? Having been on the last Zoom committee meeting for the Velocette Owners Club, we talked about getting some of the local club runs organized once again and advertised in Fishtail, so hopefully myself and Bill will be able to have a day or two off (if we can get our leave approved!!) and get some Velos out that haven't seen daylight for a while!

Hello all, we would like to wish you all the best for the New Year, difficult in the current lockdown status that we find ourselves in once again, however hopefully there is light at the end of the tunnel and we can look towards the possibility of getting out and meeting up on our Velocette machines this summer. Which gives us all some more time to do the service work that gets over looked sometimes, such as changing the oil filter - Please see ...

Hello guys, we are now distributors for Alton and their 12v Electric starter kits for the Velocette bikes. We have fitted several of these to bikes over the last few years and have been impressed with how well they fit and the fact that they don't really spoil the look of your bike. We know that the early kits had a few problems with reliability but Alton have made some improvements to help address these issues, talking us through what they have ...

Hello all, just a quick update to let you know about mudguards. I have found a great manufacturer in the UK of mudguards and have placed orders for the standard Venom/MSS(Late)/Viper front and rear mudguards in steel and in polished stainless. I have also placed an order for the narrow Thruxton/Clubman front and rear guards in steel and polished stainless steel. They will take a while to be made but as soon as they are available I will put them ...

Hello all, we hope you are all keeping safe and well. I had a bit of a nightmare last week while out on the 1954 MSS, having been out for a ride I was just around the corner from home when a white van decided to stop in the middle of the town and proceeded to quickly start to reverse but just did not look to see if anything was behind him, unfortunately it was me and the wife! We were stationary at the time but couldn't get out of the way in time ...

I have just had a batch of 3 lobe engine sprockets made to fit the KSS Mk II engine. They are 21T sprockets and pair with the M91/4 Engine shock absorber. The centre bore was slightly larger on the earlier models, so I believe that these will also fit the KTS, rigid MSS and KSS models. Please check out the main website for ordering these.

Hello guys, I hope you are all doing well and getting out a bit more on your Velos? Myself and Bill have been getting out the odd morning here and there, giving a few bikes their first runs out of the year, which is just unheard of for us so late on in the year because not only do we enjoy building and restoring these bikes, we love getting out and riding them. The 1936 MOV has been out and the 1937 KSS Mk II along with the 1965 Thruxton and 1954 ...
