EARLY B RAPIDE 1947

Early Series B Rapide with many original details, round Miller stop-lamp switch, Brampton forks, 3 Miller Dynamo, early gear linkage. Restored to a high standard in 2005.

Engine and Upper Frame numbers are the same as the Registration Documents, rear frame appears to be unstamped.

It is reported the bike may have been dealer demo and had the crankcases have been replaced with slightly later cases (from the mating numbers) stamped with the original engine number. Due to this the VOC are unable to verify the numbers.

It is very tidy with the addition of a rear Koni damper, solid cylinder studs and black chromed handlebars. Various parts nickel or chrome plated (probably due to being a demo model)

1600mls since rebuild.
