Factory Speed Tuning Tips - Drill out the Holes in the Fishtail Silencer !
I don't know how many of our group are members of the Velocette Owners Club UK, but in the latest issue Number 436,
Eric Bushell has written a wonderful article titled 'Over fifty years with Velocettes' . In the article is a copy of a letter to him, by Veloce Ltd, detailing speed tuning modifications. 
Of note is to drill out the holes in the silencer to 1/4" and modify the baffle -
Nice Scrambler air filter!

Another Velo Scrambler framed special - this one having had work done on by Bull Dog Cycles in Maine -USA
Several guys have contacted me for photos of Scramblers that have been fitted out for road use - and I just remembered about this article from Motorcycle Sport I copied years ago, and found it in my scrap book 'archives'.


Nice K model -

One of the guys contacted me - that the little lever on the side of his rigid Velo MSS gearbox was missing - and if I might have one available - 
Yes ! -(:o)
