Welcome to the website of the Le Velo club.
Formed from a spontaneous rally of riders meeting at Newlands Corner, just outside of Guildford in Surrey, in the early summer of 1950, the LE Velo Club has survived the changing values of more than six decades. Now into its 7th decade, it has over 1300 members worldwide and is a limited company committed to promoting the enjoyment, riding and restoration of the post-war lightweight models - the LE, Vogue, Valiant and Viceroy.
We have members around the world, an extensive parts department providing members with new and used parts to keep these wonderful machines alive, a monthly magazine and other benefits.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus concerns, we will suspend the operation of the Club's spares department with immediate effect.
The situation will be reviewed weekly, and details made available on the Club website.
Please do not post parts orders, cash or cheques. Any post we receive will be returned to sender.
BRAKE (front and rear) AND CLUTCH CABLES – LE (all models) VALIANT AND VOGUE
It has come to our attention that some brake and clutch cables have been fitted with nipples that may be insufficiently long to guarantee secure anchorage in the clevis. The correct length of the nipple is .531 inch (13.5mm) Owners should therefor pay particular and immediate attention to see that cables are secure in the clevis fitting on the operating arm.
The LE Velo Club Ltd will replace, without charge, any cable that it supplied which does not conform to the above specification.
If you do not understand the detail above or are having difficulty with the fitting of cables you should not use your machine.
