Established at a meeting held on 9 March 1957 at the Redhouse, 155 Park Road, St John’s Wood, London NW8 7HT (just opposite Lord’s Cricket ground), with 140 full and 26 associate founder members, the Velocette Owners’ Club (VOC) celebrated its diamond jubilee in 2017 and now has a membership of over 3000 spread across more than a dozen countries around the world. Aimed at those interested in the single cylinder products of Veloce Ltd, ownership of a Velocette is not a pre-requisite of membership.  Membership of the Velocette Owners' Club is open to all and the club welcomes members from the UK and overseas. A separate club, the LE Velo Club, caters specifically for those interested in the LE and associated twin-cylinder models.

In the UK, members are allocated to one of 28 Centres on joining, based on their home address; but all members are entitled – and most welcome - to attend events organised by any Centre. Most Centres meet regularly, typically once or twice a month. These meetings may be simple gatherings for a chat, talks or demonstrations, or involve a ride around a planned route or to a place of interest. Centre activities are managed by a Centre Secretary and other committee members and annual programmes are often produced; new members are strongly encouraged to contact their Centre Secretary to ensure they receive all available information. The VOC is usually represented at the main classic motorcycle shows and events, and holds an annual National rally over a weekend each summer. Details of Centre events are published in "Fishtail".

Members receive eight issues of the club journal, Fishtail, each year. Fishtail, widely recognised as one of the best motorcycle club magazines available, contains a variety of technical features, maintenance hints and tips, news, Centre reports, advertisements for bikes and parts for sale and a concise diary of forthcoming events. The Editor welcomes contributions from members.

The club’s Technical Secretary is available to provide free advice to members, who also have access to several specialists with particular experience of certain models. The VOC also offers a factory despatch book record service whereby, for a small fee, members can obtain a certified copy of the original factory records for some, but not all, machines. The club is accredited by the DVLA and can assist with getting unregistered Velocettes back on the road in the UK.
Veloce Spares Ltd (VSL) is owned by and operated on behalf of the club, for the exclusive benefit of its members. VSL operates an online shop providing postal delivery of a wide range of high quality spares at very reasonable prices, including a number of special items developed to provide an advantage over the originals. The Old Chapel also contains the club archive, which contains many rare and hard to find documents and records relating to Veloce and their products.

The club offers a varied selection of items through its Regalia shop; these include machine decals, books, badges and clothing (made to order) as well as very helpful DVDs to guide engine and gearbox overhaul, mainly for the sprung frame pushrod models.

We hope that, knowing the benefits of membership,  you will want to join the Velocette Owners’ Club; please select the appropriate option above.
