Velocettes are special. Founded in 1904 by John Goodman (born Johannes Gόtgemann), the company was originally called Veloce Ltd. But following the success of an early two stroke model called the Velocette, that appelation became the name by which all future Veloce bikes were known, and the name was formally adopted in the mid-1920s.

 

Based at Hall Green, Birmingham, the company prided itself on top quality manufacturing coupled with original and sophisticated engineering. The classic bike annals are replete with tales and myths detailing the complexity of Velocette engineering, and while there is truth there, it isn't all true.

These bikes can be mastered by the everyday guy or girl, and when they are, they become all the more satisfying and seductive. And you don't need a degree and a slide rule to become a Velocette owner. You just need patience and the desire to learn.

 

You also need a guide such as this to help you pick and choose the right bike, which is where author Peter Henshaw comes in. This book assumes no previous knowledge and takes you through the basic stuff (which is usually what really counts), to the more considered issues that you'll also need to understand.

 

Velocettes are fantastic motorcycles when mastered. This guide is where your education begins.
