Brand new member, '39 350

Postby Phil B » Mon Apr 24, 2017 6:16 pm

Good evening.

I've just joined as I now have a 1939 RH 350 on it's way, hopefully next weekend on the one beyond.

Not new to bikes, HD and Triumphs (Meriden and Hinckley) mainly, but also a Suzuki 650 Burgman (my third!).

The bike
It's not been fired for 25 years but was "running sweet" when parked. She looks complete, and a surprise for me is it has a plunger frame.

The owner assures me it is the correct '39 frame, not a crash rebuild. At the price I paid, gift horse etc!!! I'll check the numbers and gather opinions later on.

I'll have a thousand dumb questions later on I'm sure.

Phil,
Again a warm welcome. When you get it post some photos, it will be nice to see how original it is.

Perhaps someone could post them here if I emailled them?
I just searched tapatalk and it doesn't recognise this forum.
