1967 Velocette MSS 500cc
Priced at SOLD. From the vehicle records held by the Oxfordshire archive this Velocette was first registered in Oxfordshire on the 8th of August 1967. It was taken to the USA in the early 1970's (has US registration sticker for 1972). In 1992 it was purchased by a German collector who though he was buying a Thuxton, but when it arrived by British Airways air freight it turned out to be an MSS instead! It has been in his large private collection for the past 27 years, before coming to us. The mileage of 08872 is believed to be correct. Our road test has shown how nicely the bike rides, giving all the indication of being low mileage. Comes with the latest DVLA V5C registration document, is registered under the 'Historic Vehicle' class & is MOT exempt.
Note:- The new V5C registration document arrived 15/11/2019 & DVLA have alocated the registration number AHJ 782E. The registration number shown on the new photographs was the original number before the bike went to the US in the early 1970's.
