Identify these bikes! / Sun Overlander ?
« on: March 31, 2020, 12:23:23 PM »
Hi, Am trying to work out the model of a Sun. Identical to a Sun Overlander 250 twin but takes a single cylinder which I presume is a 9e . Colour is a Sky Blue even down to Sun tank badges. I was told here in Australia it was a Wasp/Overlander But I also come across this info  ("In 1957 the companies answer to the decline in lightweight sales were two new models with new frames, the 200cc Century and the 250cc 4 speed Overlander, known as the Overlander Twin. The Overlander was a vain attempt to make a better lightweight than any of the many other manufacturers that made Villiers engined lightweights. Both were too little, too late.")  The "Century" I can not find listed any where so if any one please can shed a glimmer of light it would be very much appreciated. A parts book on the Overlander would help me if any one has one available .

British Bikes / Villiers Type 3/2 Carb
« on: January 03, 2017, 11:23:21 AM »
Hi, I am new to the site so greetings & Happy New Year to all.
I am looking for a Villiers Type 3/2 Carburettor for a 1945 WD Royal Enfield Flying Flea. It was only fitted to the War time production so as to fit a large choke & air filter, civilian models had the Amal Carb. fitted post war, which mine had when i got the bike. Is there any reason why this Carb.was fitted? I think I have attached a file of a 3/2. Any help would be appreciated.
I can also be reached at
