I think the bike is 1937 because of the new style kneegrips (1937 - onwards) but the painted tank panel (ended 1937). The owner has fitted the new twistgrip, the original being a straight pull type. If you look at the inner end of the new twistgrip you can see the reatining rin (about 1/4" wide) which was used for the straight pull type. Incidentally, if someone needs one of these rings, I have rechromed original one - somewhere.

Hi Paul,
Thank you for your reply.
I think you have nailed it.
The painted panel rules out 1938.
Is that the reset lever on the PA speedometer just above the chromed bezel?
Cheers,
Ray
1937 RH1 or RH2
