Why here and what the hell is a Famous James??? Well Famous James is an English 2 stroke motorcycle which used the Villiers motor. It was originally used for military use and later (40's and 50's) sold in the US for civilian use. So it is a Thumper as that term is used here. I posted here, trying to find one for an old riding buddy. It's kind of a a bucket list deal and I would really appreciate any leads you guys might have. Thanks!!!
