Engine no: KTT153
It is a shame this was never built but the makings of a wonderful 1929 KTT 350cc engine are here below.
The KTT was a production racer built by the Veloce factory in Birmingham for the Isle of Man TT. Only 1000 were made over a 20 year period starting in 1929. It is said that these were the most successful 350cc race bikes in their day. This engine is from one of the earliest models.
The parts available for this engine are all shown below and it includes a barrel, 2 flywheels, cases, new and original pistons, racing carburetor etc. It will be sold through ebay.
The start date for the ebay sale is Thursday 25th September 2014. It is planned to end 10 days later.
CORRECTION: due to ebay pulling the item listing down and it having to be re-listed, this ebay auction now ends in the early hour of 07 Oct, 2014, at 00:11:37 AEDST (ie. you will need to be bidding around midnight AEDST on Monday the 6th October)
This is a wonderful opportunity for a Velocette fan or a classic racing enthusiast to acquire the makings of a renowned motor and either start on the creation of their own KTT or to add to an existing frame.
Having handled these parts myself to photograph them, I would also like to add that you can really see the craftsmanship that went into making them all those years ago – beautiful alloys and precision made pieces. Stunning.
