the story...
bought this 1940 wm20 in 2015 off a Greek motorcycle website on the understanding it only required "light restoration" , on taking delivery i was disappointed to find it had flat tyres , snapped back spindle, no wiring harness, welded up girder forks, rotted out mudguards and so much more.
So from light restoration to complete rebuild, wheels refurbished with new bearings and nos wheel spindle, engine stripped barrel honed and nos +060" piston rings and valve regrind, gearbox stripped cleaned new bearings, new clutch, primary chain,, mag refurb and dynamo rebuild, new old stock front mudguard and girder forks and 8" reproduction headlight, but i do have the old original one and the original exhaust and girder forks which can go with the bike should we get near the asking price.
 Canvas seat cover all hand sewn with grips and period correct wiring loom, brand new tyres and inner tubes and all new cables.
  This bike has never been ridden and deserves so much more than stood in the corner of my garage and in my opinion should be in a museum or motorcycle collection.
  V5 present and in my name with historic vehicle status, i can what's app a video of the bike should you so wish.
  The last picture shows the bike when i received it from Greece.
  Please ask any questions you may have or give me a call on the details below should you wish to view the bike.
  Thanks for looking.
