Velocette LE 1958

200cc with 4 speed foot change

This is the actual 1958 Velocette LE featured on the TV show Shed and Buried (Series 4 Episode 15). I have the old V5 in Henry Cole’s name. I know he’s a bit of a Marmite character but if you like the show it’s a point of interest. If you don’t like the show, it’s still a nice little bike!

For the show the frame and metalwork were powder coated, so it will never be a concourse bike. Also, some parts were cleaned and spray painted. It’s not a bike for the restoration purists.

What I’ve done to it:

Carb overhauled

Modern coil fitted.

New batteries (2 x 2Ah in parallel)

New condenser.

What still needs attention:

Rear tyre is the wrong size

Main stand needs overhauling

Starts easily and runs well. A lovely smooth bike to ride. It was bought for my partner (V5 in her name). Unfortunately she has lost her confidence and is no longer enjoying riding it.

Thanks for looking
