Hey everyone decided to re do my wanted Advert as the goal posts have changed slightly narrowed it down to three models.

Rigid Pre War International
Flat tank Model 18
Flat tank 16H seen the ones advertised currently.

If anyone has anything for sale in the UK feel free to pop me a message :)
Budget will vary dependant on the above model or history on the bike as I've learnt they are all very different should be sufficient though.

Many thanks,

Tom

Haha! OK OK lol 1927 16H flat tanker 3 owner bike n all matching records even got the original grips o.o but you will all have to wait for pics lol viewed her on Friday n pick her up week of the 25th huge journey again but worth it :) shes got great bones n overall originality few things to sort n naturally get her running but overall very good gonna be a highly tricky resto in striking the balance between preservation patina n sorting stuff that needs doing. Look forward to getting everyone's take on it.

Thanks guys yep, I didn't quite have the budget for a Model 18 in the end, the cammys were a nightmare out of 30 bikes 29 were restamps or wrong frames etc, so decided to hunt for a 16H sidevalve flat tank which seemed to make sense she came up n was totally original n unrestored on the whole + some very interesting history so was a no brainer really very excited :)

Great that you found your new ride. Though new might not be the right word for a close to a century old bike. Has it has druid forks, hand shift and total loss oil system?
I presume you'll keep the 650SS and the WD16H. By the way is the WD16H rideable yet?

The ideal number is what you already have + 1 more ad infinitum..
