The Velocette LE – ‘Little Engine’ – was a common sight for well over 20 years on the roads of Britain and are most often associated with the police – over 50 forces used them during their 23-year production run from 1948. In police use, the bikes became known as ‘Noddy Bikes’ – not due to any link to the well-known children’s book character, but rather due to the fact that the junior police riders who usually rode them were required to nod to their superiors when passing – a salute would have been the norm, but this was not encouraged as it involved removing a hand from the handlebars. Thus, nodding police officers chugging along on this distinctive bike became a common sight.
This 200cc LE is very genuine and appears to be complete; although starting has not been attempted, it turns over freely. There aren’t any documents.
