Mike Davis of H&H Classics says: “These bikes are incredibly collectable and they continue to rise in value.

Our sale at the NMM on October 27 represents a unique opportunity to acquire a most original and genuine ‘Superbike’ from the pre-war era that can still provide an exhilarating ride or grace any serious collector's stable.”

The machine has all its correct numbers, frame, engine, and gearbox as per the machine card and confirmed by the BSOC.

Its early history is unknown but it was purchased by BSOC member Mike Holben in the 1950s, and formally owned by Titch Allen.

It is offered in very good order and the previous restoration is holding up extremely well. A copy of the works record card is on file with various paperworks, V5c, and a continuation RF60 logbook from 1968.
