Lot 52 - A 1920 ABC 398cc, registration number AU 4486, frame number 1849, engine number, 1771, black. The Granville Bradshaw advanced designed ABC was produced by the Sopwith Aircraft Company. A groundbreaking design which drew heavily on Bradshaw's air cooled aero engine experience during WWII. The engine was an overhead valve flat Twin with integral four speed gearbox and the frame featured a duplex loop with sprung front and rear folks. An advanced bike in its day it was a record breaker setting the one hour record at Brooklands at an average speed of 70.44 mph ridden by JLE Emerson. This beautifully presented and restored ABC comes direct from a deceased estate. It is a well equipped example with leather saddlebags, foot boards and lighting. The machine has formed part of a small private collection and will require some light recommissioning due to a recent lack of use. This Banbury run eligible machine will be offered for auction with a history file. V5C, MOT and tax exempt
