A GENUINE T.T. VELOCETTE AVAILABLE. 1`
Many manufacturers have based their 1` next year’s” models on the design of machines which have been successful in the T.T. races, but it is rare for an absolute replica of a winning machine to be produced.
This, however, is being done by Veloce, Ltd., and for 00 motor-cyclists will be able to secure a machine which is identical, both as regards appearance and speed, with that on which Alec. Bennett won this year’s Junior Tourist Trophy race at a record sp.; ed for the course.
The new Velocette is to be known as the KTT model ; it will be on view at the Olympia Motor-Cycle Show, and deliveries will he available shortly afterwards. It has foot-controlled gears, an additional scavenger pump on the overhead cam-box, a heavily ribbed crankcase, special T.T. petrol tank and various other refinements. It is being made in three different forms, these being suitable for use with petrol-benzole, ” PAIS ” (alcohol) and ” RD ” (alcohol), respectively. In the latter “
sprint” form it is capable of speeds well in excess of 90 m.p.h.’ and is in fact exactly similar to the machine on which F. G. Hicks recently lapped Brooklands at 101 m.p.h.
