All the W/NG frames are BH NBH or RBH and have a bend at the beginning of the two rails under the seat.( in the rails them selves) the tank is sitting in exactly the same position height wise as the catalogue illustration. the guards are "D" section rather than alloy 1/2 round as the earlier ones were.

Some sidecar and scramble competitors prefered the standard roadframe instead of the shorter COM.
There was also a CO engine in a ansteylinkframe and in the later all alu frame.

The factory riders didn't like the small fins so they rather had the road head and barrel aswell.

The bike has made a re-apperance after only one year...

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 3551803781

What are peoples thoughts? It's got the magnesium CC, correct style mudguards and stays, BTH magneto, a claimed wide ratio gear box... Quite a bit going for it. Seems to be in a standard road frame, which wouldn't surprise me for an earlier competition bike really.

Fantasy framenumber on the wrong side of the frame, wich is a WD type frame.
Engine could be genuine but I see heavy corrosion near the bottom of the crankcase.

As written here many times before, take care with this dealer.
But if you insist in buying pay max half of this price and only part with your money when the bike is on your trailer and with the car pointing towards the exit and with engine running :lol: :lol: .

I would be very dubious buying anything from there that's for sure! Thankfully plenty of information across this forum regarding that bike for anyone who does any research!
