1948 VELOCETTE MK8 KTT

When the Mk8 appeared in 1938, Norton’s days as Junior master were over. It was lighter and more refined than the Manx and pool petrol after the war extended its advantage. But by 1950 Velocette had run out of engineering brilliance and sadly it was mothballed. About 300 only were built and an original restored bike is worth $AUD65k minimum.
