Sorry Dennis, but it's not cool and it's definitely not a bike - it's got three wheels. Trikes are vehicle number 4 in my list of vehicles which shouldn't be allowed out anywhere near a public road......vehicle number 1 is a car towing a caravan.

The Sunbeam arrived early Tuesday morning after its 1100 odd km trip from Melbourne.
I checked the fluids all was good,a graunching sound from the rear end turned out to be the tyre/tire touching the rear mudguard only (they have a bronze crown wheel)
Hooked the 6 volt battery up,a splash of fuel,tickle the Amal 276 and it fired up first kick. :D
It runs very nicely for being over 64 years old,the forks are a little harsh so will get a full service shortly,it has one of the smoothest gearbox's (1 up / 3 down) even when first is selected,nothing,not even a click.
