Push-rod Models Added to a Famous Range of o.h.c. Machines with a Fine Racing Pedigree
VELOCE, LTD., HALL GREEN, BIRMINGHAM.
World-Famous on road and track, Velocettes are well known as exponents of the overhead camshaft. Recently, however, the makers have introduced 250 c.c. and 350 c.c. push-rod engines. They have kept the push-rods short by raising the timing gear, and taken special pains to ensure mechanical silence. The valve gear is entirely enclosed.
The frame is of the cradle type, and both models are of typical Velocette excellence. The price of the three-fifty (M. A. C.) is £49 10S.
Typical of the camshaft range is the K.T.S. A four-gallon tank is a new feature which adds to the appearance Of the machine, and the four speed-box is now foot-operated. Special valanced mudguards and chain protection are employed.
The K.S.S. is a model of rather more sporting aspect, with 27x3in. tyres and lighter guards; it sells at £59 10s. The K. T. T. is a racing model, sold at £89. There is also the well-known 250 c.c. two-stroke, which now has a transfer port cut in the piston.
