The Famous James…

Now this may not be the most expensive bike uncovered by anybody, and I guess it was not really a “Barn” find, but more of a shed find, not by me I must add, but by one of my friends.
So I wonder what you will make of this sweet little James, totally original and only missing the original throttle, and fuel tap. That in itself is pretty amazing for a bike made in 1948, but look at the tinware, no rust damage, sure it has surface corrosion as would be expected, but this bike really wants just a rub over with an oily rag, it is not even seized, and does have a spark.

A little patina

Not bad for 68 years old.

I dropped by my local garage on saturday morning, just to have my K100-Rs checked over, to make sure all was well, as it is now all road legal. And while there, they had a nice Kwaka smoker on the bench….
