The frontspring is pulling and it has a rearstand making it end 1929 or early 1930 model F.

It has the 1929 inspectioncap on the magneto sprocketcase but that could just be the timingdeck.

Front reg plate lettering and pattern looks a bit odd to me, looks almost like there's a smaller plate on top of a bigger one - is that a non-UK bike?
