Velocette LE 1949-71, 149cc-192cc, WC SV flat twin, 250lb, 100mpg, 55mph. Pleasant little bike & the 'LE' meant 'Little Engine'. It was manufactured to get away from the idea of the oily engined bikes with chain drive of the period. Excellent ride, no noise or vibrations, this was a major hit with the police forces of the country & led to the demise of the 'Bobby on a Push Bike'. Designed around a pressed steel chassis it had leg shields, glove box & panniers to accomodate commuters, & was propelled by a shaft drive from a twin water cooled engine which was rubber mounted. The 149cc Mk1 model gave way to the 192cc Mk2 in 1952 & in 1958 the Mk3 came along with kick-start & 4 speed foot gear-change.
