Though they're pretty common "across the pond" in Europe, not too many Velocette LE's were ever imported to the U.S. Here's a rare chance to own a very interesting small motorcycle.

This particular LE is a Mark 3 model, which means it has a 4-speed transmission and a foot shifter, along with the larger 192cc engine. Earlier models featured a 3-speed, hand-shifted transmission and a 150cc engine. According to the auction, this bike was originally purchased by the police in the city of Leeds, and it comes with the original English log book that shows the ownership history, and it's being sold with a bill of sale.
