How different is the 1933/34/35 frame from the one for which the 1932 four-valve engine was made? And if the frame and engine do not match, in what price range should the bike be?
The tank is painted black, with red panels. Should it be chromed with red panels?
Look closely at the downpipe on the right side. It seems to have been cut through and welded up. Has someone taken a left side downpipe and adapted it to fit?
The vehicle has a RH-series registration mark. That series was issued by Kingston-upon-Hull between 1929 and 1934.
The previous owner was Reg Eyre, who lived in the Cotswolds. Did any of you know him or this bike in those days?
