1953 MAC Owned for over 35 years. My first motorcycle bought for US$100 with a broken first gear, that once fixed was has been on the road as my transportation. I left the country for 20 years and the first few years was safely stored at my fathers garage but it then ended up at my brothers shop where it sadly placed and deteriorate cosmetically. I have spent the past 6 years bringing it together with all the original parts. My final step is to place the decals!

At the moment of the photo it still was missing the dynamo, which it has now been installed. The engine was build here with the supervision of my dear father Jack Forrest Greene who is a genius with engines a story of him at Fishtail 395 Overseas members by Alan Lawrence who kindly took the story of the MK8 in Argentina.

Today jan 15 2018 the bike is fantastic and is used to go down town or to visit a client on a 40 ish mile rides.

The 1953 MAC came out in a local magazine.

1948 MAC Bought it on 2005 and although it was pretty complete, it needed the entire top end of the engine to be repaired for proper running. The frame was cut/unwelded underneath the seat! which it was repaired but the rest was amazingly still original, including all chains and bearings. She still needs some repair on the rear mudguard but overall very straight and runs extremely smooth. Again, worked on the engine with my father who was very kind to help out.

I have taken hundreds of photos while restoring and at some loval events at my Velo site http://velocettemotorcycles.com/

1948 MOV Bought in peaces a couple of years back, well, thinking about it a little more! Gathering some peaces at a time, cleaning and repairing.  It's all there.  The engine had a fantastic modification to the valve cup retainer which I copied for my 48 MAC with a retun pipe.  Same system the bigger bikes have.
