Sorry - UK sale ONLY

Note - This is a 'classified' listing - not an auction - which means you can make offers at any time which I might accept. No need to wait till the end (it may be sold by then)


Another of my stable for sale to fund the 'dream' bike

I have owned and used this Velo for over 2 years - having purchased it from another Velocette Owners Club member



It has its original engine and frame numbers. and was despatched from Velocette agent Kings of Leeds. on 16 February 1962

The Velocette Venom is acknowledged by 'those in the know' as one of the most rideable and practical classic British motorcycles.

The powerful. torquey. and reliable single cylinder engine is more than capable of providing good accellaration. with cruising well above legal speed limits. Without doubt. the bikes themselves are stylish and full of character. a thoroughbred - with a heritage going back to the early 1900s.

The Venom is extremely well served in terms information. and of parts. with a number of specialist suppliers ensuring that spares are not only readily available but very reasonably priced

There is a great owners club too - very active (not pot-hunters and polishers) and I can thoroughly recommend joining

No wonder prices continue to increase for these great bikes


This Velo is a good solid machine. not 'tarted up' for sale. and therefore suitable for every day use - even when the weather is not so perfect


Its in good order mechanically - but would benefit from some light cosmetic TLC



There are some chips in the paint in various places consistent with normal use.


The seat is well padded. It was like this when I bought it - but it was so comfortable. I decided not to change it. The filling can be easily removed if its not to your liking


As always - photographs tend to flatter - its best viewed in the flesh


There is plenty of compresssion when starting

It starts easily (for a Velocette). and ticks-over like it should (its fitted with electronic ignition).

Charges the battery correctly
Tyres are good

Just had a new MOT



All-in-all its still a good looking Velo Venom. and always draws comments when seen on the road
A very desirable model now
It has correct engine and frame numbers
Has its original registration number (which may be transferable)

Please study the pictures


So. if you want a good classic bike to use in any weather. this would be a good choice.

The metal parts have been treated with a protective spray to prevent corrosion during the winter months


Everything works - It could be ridden away today


If you need more pictures. or other information - please contact me.

Or text me on phone (I will not answer calls without a text first)


I have seen similar bikes listed for over £9500. and part-assembled projects for £6000. but I am happy to sell at the listed price for a fast sale

Sensible offers considered

Its a beautiful and solid bike - but remember - this motorcycle is over 50 years old - be realistic in your expectations - its not like a modern Yamaha or Honda (thank God).

Do come and view without obligation to buy


The value of this Velocette can only go up due to its age and rarity. historic tax is free.


At the end of auction - the winning bidder must pay £200 by Paypal within 24 hours as a non-refundable holding deposit - otherwise the bike will be re-listed without warning

The balance must be paid in cash - not Paypal


Happy to answer any questions
