here is the spring
should be this
Back when men were men and sheep were terrified
Oh man. That's a beauty.
A beautiful HT5. Equally so with Sammy Miller's "GOV 132" which he made about 100 lbs lighter!
another spring for true men and terrified sheeps
it should be this
my 1958 James Trials commando, i got it from the original owner and did a total restoration on it, he had it in his garden shed stored for 27 years!!! it came with all the original paperwork and tax discs until it went kaput and was 'stored'
it was funny he told me it was one of only six ever built, i confirmed this with sammy miller and the antique motorcycle club of Great Britain, and they both also confirmed that they would make 6/10/20/ 50 of a bike and if it didn't sell then they would make another 'rare collectable'
it had a Villers 197cc engine, the frame had virtually no welds on it, it was all held together with metric hardware, allegedly as after the war it was easier to get and more available in Britain, than standard English hardware, anything that wasn't metric was whitworth sizes
Ironically there's another just across the fields from me, now that I've seen your pics I'll start angling for an invitation to view.
bought for 275, sold restored for 5000 - pounds that is...just a little fyi for bargaining with
£5,000? I imagine you didn't cut many corners.
Was out riding this tonight. What an awesome motor
Love this little bike..! dave
I saw one of those last week. It's for sale. Such a shame that it's "slightly" out of range for me
also I've seen a BSA a10 Street Scrambler here http://www.classicbikesuk.com which I could buy but I'm in Italy and I have no friend there who could done it for me....
From this past weekend
I bought another English bike:
More parts wil be coming in next week. I hope.
It looks like I'll have something to do this winter.....
