1959 Velocette MAC 350cc…

I have had most of the bikes I have wanted to own now, but there are still a few left on the list that I have never owned or ridden. One of this is the magnificent Velocette.

I would like any of the main sprung frame models, a MAC, Viper, Venom, and of course the fantastic Thruxton, but most are sadly out of my price range. During the week I called round to see Mick at his shop in Farnborough, and in the shed was an old project Velo MAC 350, so I asked Mick if I could have a look, and hear it run.

Matching numbers, but not totally original

I must admit to being tempted, although I have an old friend returning to my little lockup next week, so we shall see.
