SO she's ready to go now. We've been right through her; a full service and MOT'd even though bikes registered before 1960 no longer require an MOT.
As you can see from previous blogs we ended up going through the motor to double check clearances and we found out that she had recently been rebuilt and with high quality parts.
She's a 1950 with matching belly numbers but not all parts are from that year; she's had many of the updates and repairs/ replacements that come with most 60+ year old bikes (we're not concours riders here so you'll have to count the rivets yourselves to make sure)!!! Certainly she has been updated with a foot gear shift which didn't come in until 1952 ish so that alone has its effect on the later gas tanks, the mouse trap clutch, foot change etc.
She's up for sale at £11,250 or she'll be on ebay next year. Give us a call if you're interested.
