From the seller

A fine example of the 59 Velocette Viper Serviced and in really good running order

 

For those who do not covet the Viper, the facts are as follows. 350cc single cylinder offered from 1955 until 1968. It is the evolution of earlier, small displacement motorcycles from Velocette, with a high compression piston and a light alloy cylinder head. It produced 28bhp at 7000 rpm and a printed top speed of 91mph.

But like most motorcycles there is more to the Velocette Viper then what is written. There is the tradition and history that comes with the Velocette name, there is the British tradition of a single cylinder when the rest of the world had moved to multi’s. This 1959 Velocette Viper may be small, but there is so much more then the seller lets on with two pictures and 15 words.  BB
