Ah! It's Sunday afternoon and time for some obnoxious moaning ...hmmmmmyummie. :lol: :lol:

One Pound change from your 17.000,- GBP. ( that is 20.740 Euro ) :shock:
It looks nice and is a credit to whoever build this, but it is a lot of money...…... for a bitsa .

Headlamp looks 7" and with the switch on the back is older or a replica, brackets way to long.
Front hub , looks like a W/NG item as I can see the strengthening plate on the outside, forked brake lever ?
Postwar type steering damper knob.
Should the kickstarter have a peg instead of a bolt ?, this one looks like a Triumph item.
Armoured oil lines, should be pipe.
Exhaust cooling rings ,..yuk! , wrong type
Postwar carb.
What did he cobble up for a horn bracket?
Frame lug behind right hand side exh.pipe looks to be broken/torn off ?
Interesting bit of engineering on lower part of pushrod tubes.
Dont know if that type of dipswitch/horn button belongs on a '37 model, but the builder got fed up with the finishing touches and covered the wiring with DIY plastic tape.
Cant find any proper pics from the drive side, more fun there ?

Still a lot of money.....
