Re: ECP 136 1954 NH

Yes that is one reason for this section of the forum...to possibly reunite logbooks with the original bike The second reason is that it also gives members and the Club Registrar a heads up that something may be 'fishy' in the event that a motorcycle, bearing details from an 'Ebay' logbook, comes up ...

Re: 1942 RN WNG restoration-Updated 30/01/20
