This 1938 Velocette 350 MAC was purchased as an original set of unassembled parts in 2000. Because of the condition of the frame and footpegs, it is suggested that the machine may have been used for racing. The engine has been completely rebuilt by a knowledgeable motorcycle engine and transmission builder in Long Beach CA. The frame was powder coated. Gas tank, toolbox, and oil tank are all original parts. Mudguards are not original. Motor runs strong and the motorcycle is smooth through the gears. Watch and listen to the video. This newly restored motorcycle is ready for the next curator and is in need of the proper break-in procedures to enhance its long term existence.
It is noted that this motorcycle has a 1938 frame number (VIN) and that the engine number translates to 1947.
Zero. (odometer is not currently attached, but actual mileage is less than 50).
All new paint, some light scratches here and there from the restoration. The paint was completed early in the restoration (2004). It was properly applied by a professional paint shop and shows well.
Sheet metal is clean, with no dents. Mostly original metal as found in 2000. Fenders are new, purchased from a supplier in the UK.
Chrome on rims is good, chrome on engine beautiful.
Original motor rebuilt by Tony Digati with new top end. Bike runs well and is in need of a correct break-in period. Correct fine-tuning needed to make it a reliable machine.
