Humber produced motorcycles from 1896 to 1905 and from 1909 to 1930. So successful were their 350cc singles that they won the team prize in the 1923 ISDT but from 1930 car production took over from motorcycles (Rootes were calling the shots at this time) and this model was produced from 1927 to 1930. This two-owner Vintage Humber is remarkably well preserved and largely unrestored, it’s 3. 49hp 350cc Over Head Valve engine is a first-kick starter and the whole bike has been very well maintained in original specification. It has been in single family ownership since 1978 and had only one previous owner from new. Recent attention includes new spokes, tyres/ tubes and brake linings front and rear. The front suspension has been rebuilt and shows no wear. The magneto was rebuilt by Donald Day and the oil pump rebuilt by Peter Rosenthal “Pete the Pump”. Classic Bike Workshop have just set the timing and carburation and adjusted the clutch and brakes to provide easy and efficient operation. What you see here is an easy-to-start and ride girder-fork motorcycle which is more than capable of providing reliable transport at moderate road speed almost 100 years after it left the factory. That’s quite a thing for less than the price of a modern roadster isn’t it? Originally supplied with a sidecar fitted; as so many were; it has been a solo for most of its life and the old Log Books provide a record of changes over the years. It’s fun to ride, light and surprisingly fast on the road.
