Just a few photos - it’s another manx from 1953 and one I’ve recently completed

1953 this one.

Delivered to Joe Potts who prepared it to George Brown (later better known for riding Vincent engined Nero and Supernero).

George rode it in the 53TT but DNF’d after being taken out by a works Gilera (if you are going to crash best do it in style!). Later ridden by Bob Macintyre.

Full restoration this one and it needed it - battle scared and broken down best described it.

Is the bug screen only a screen or is there a glass/film layer?
That has got to be a rare part in that kind of condition.
