I just found what should be a 63 MSS in barn fresh condition. It turns over with no spark. I have instructions on cleaning the magneto brushes. Who is a good supplier of Velo parts. I will need cables and a headlight. I may need a generator. I have one but it is not original to the bike.

Hi peter, probably a bit late but I enlarged the photo of your velocette and think it may actually be a scrambler and possibly a bit earlier than 1963. at least the frame and fittings indicate that.
First from the photo it appears to have the oil tank fitted to the left side of the bike and an early air filter on the right.Some of the early scramblers were like this.
Secondly the shocks.are the early type 1955 to 1959.
It also appears to have a remote float carb which may be an AMAL TT, although difficult to tell from the photo.
Take a look at ehere the swing arms are clamped to the frame pivot. If there are a couple of screws threaded from the individual swings arms through to the swing arm axle then it probably is a scrambler frame.

Yes those were grubscrews that locked the swing arms to the trunnion to stop them rotating under 'scrambling' stresses. Good observations Rob.
If that's a TT carb, it'll probably have a Manual magneto too... then you're most of the way to a Clubman with that stuff.
