Velocette MAC Gallery

Velocette is the name given to motorcycles that were made by Veloce Ltd, in Birmingham, England. One of several motorcycle manufacturers in Birmingham, Velocette was a small, family-owned firm, selling far fewer hand-built motorcycles than the giant BSA, Norton or Triumph. Renowned for the quality of its products, the company was 'always in the picture' in international motorcycle racing, from the mid-1920s to the 1950s, culminating in two world championship titles (1949–1950 350 cc) and its legendary and still unbeaten 24 hours at 100mph record. Veloce, while small, was a great technical innovator and many of its patented designs are commonplace on motorcycles today, including the positive-stop foot shift.

Soon this model was followed by the 349 cc MAC, which had the same bore ( 68 mm) as the MOV; the 349 cc capacity was reached by lengthening the stroke to 96 mm, in this way providing the advantage of many shared parts. In 1935 a 500cc model, the MSS, was marketed. The MOV and MSS models were discontinued in 1948. The MAC stayed in production till 1960.
