1964 Velocette Venom

1964 VELOCETTE VENOM BACKGROUND
By the time Venom production began in 1965, Velocette was almost at the end of its long road of singles. And it represented everything that Velo had learned about building a big single. They were fast, light, handled well, and were very reliable. Since Velocette never made a proper vertical twin like virtually every other British brand, there fast 'halo bikes' were all big singles, like the Venom and the Thruxton. Production officially ended in 1970 with the closing of the Velocette factory.
