Velocette LE200 motor cycle.
The Velocette LE was introduced in 1949 with a 150-cc engine and launched as the ‘Motorcycle for Everyman’. The LE stood for Little Engine and was notably light and quiet. In 1951 the engine capacity increased to 192-cc and though the motorcycle still proved too expensive for mass consumption, they were very popular with British police forces which gained the bike the nickname ‘the Noddy Bike’. This motorcycle is a 1955 version of the LE with a larger 200 cc engine. Production stopped in 1968 when the Velocette factory closed.
