1936 Red Hunter?

It has the dreaded India tank, 350 oiltank, welded to the frame sidestand, wrong brakepadle, etc.

If you have to buy a India tank, buy it raw so you can alter the faults, it's not easy in this case.

Not much 36. Hideous seat springs. Later head, chaincase. tele forks. Might run OK but Girder forks would be worth a fortune. Makes a lot of our bikes look real good. Nev

The clutch arm on the kickstart end of the gearbox might well be 1936 but I can't see much else that is. The bike looks most like a 1949 or early 1950 model to me. Note the sidecar lug on the front downtube which confirms that the frame, supposedly the identification part of the bike, is postwar. I think this sidecar lug came in for 1950.

My 48 nh has no side car fitting on the front down tube but the 53 vha does. The yokes on the bike look like the 49/50 yokes. So in my eyes a very poor advert! Not a 36 but a mix of parts from different years.
