Wanted Bikes / Enfield trials or something close
« on: March 13, 2017, 07:57:37 AM »
Probably ideally a modern Enfield (the electric start version) with some form of trials type conversion. Doesn't need to be competitive as its for dead easy green laning/commuting.
Might consider something of this nature but another UK manufacturer. Old is fine.

British Bikes / Watney m/c
« on: May 18, 2016, 07:53:20 PM »
Hello. New to elderly motorcycles so I thought I would start here.
I have acquired a Watney.

http://www.sungreen.co.uk/lydney_forest_of_dean/watts_first_garage.html

Built just down the road. Its the bike in the pic, obtained from a close friend whose father had it for decades before he died. I have all that you can see except the rear rim and the front number plate has been cleaned off . grrrr. It is in big lumps plus some extras eg tank, lighting etc.
Where do I start?
 Can't find a frame number and the number on the engine, it's a Blackburne, that I have found looks wrong. DB329. Number on the Burman box is E17 5 or 8 9 . Both turn over and feel fine. 
I am hoping that some film of it running turns up with the reg number visible and identifiable people etc. Just may help getting it registered. I am assuming that a log book is long lost.
Expect this to be long winded unless someone points me to a better place !
Cheers, Matt
