This one was built by Willem Molenaar from a pile of bits and is listed on the club's register in 2006. It appears again in 2019 for sale by yesterdays. They either sold it and bought it back again or have had it in stock for a long time. The frame number would indicate 1916 but the engine number and appearance say 1920.

He allso has a 1916? Vtwin with a strange story; he bought it in parts from a photograph at the Brands hatch 1000 bikes show jumble, he made a downpayment and he agreed with the central-London seller to finish the deal after the show.
The seller got a better deal later at the show so riding to his London home he tried to ditch Willem by speeding and taking red trafficlights both riding Diesel vans.
When arrived the dealer wanted VAT on the money wich Willem payed after protest.

Sammy Miller was advertising in the same period; don't exile your motorcycle but sell it to me (for peanuts).
