    That's the guy from Red Max Speedshop in Dunkeswell (near Honiton). Didn't he pull a 961 apart some years ago after having problems with it, and rebuilt it into a flat tracker.

    The engine is a Dreer 961 Prototype, with a different timing cover - see the round "points" cover on the front.
    The Dreer prototypes had the ignition rotor on the end of the camshaft.
    Not sure where the oil filter was located on the prototypes.

    Thanks. That’s my point. Don’t see where the oil filter is. Unless the whole side cover needs to be removed?

    No, no, no - the bike, not SG!

    The bike was called “The Swindler” as a ‘tribute’ to SG. Seriously.

    I have messaged him on behalf of this forum as to what spares he may have.

    IIRC the guy was so utterly underwhelmed by his experience of dealing with SG, he called the bike thus...

    Maybe the H-D sportster concept of attaching the oil filter on the chassis was adopted for these early prototypes
