Don't know, possibly Ural as there is a couple of them in the background. I could be wrong as others made flat twins beside BMW (even Hardly Dangerous). Shame we cannot see the sign at bottom right of picture. Where was the pic taken?

Too many thread and pitch sizes, no I'm really confused.  :o

Starter/generator on right hand side of crankshaft. They were a bit weak and needed a really well charged battery if the compressions were good. I think by increasing the size of the wires would have helped. I mainly used the kick start on mine.

Some sort of horrible kids minibike with a lawnmower engine?

Ford had an Ice White, and I think Renault had the blue (don't quote me as it was a few years ago when I painted it).

Any good locksmith will be able to cut a new key to fit the lock.

Good effort. The seat needs some longer springs or spacers to bring it up slightly above level. The way it is now you will slide off the back over ever bump.

Very nice, looks good. Chinese engine I'm guessing? Why 20" wheels? Surely some size easier to get tyres/rims for would help with pricing?
Good luck to you and I hope you do well with it.

If the documents don't match the frame/engine numbers then they are not for this bike, and my suspicious mind thinks of stolen/rebirthing schemes. I would walk away unless the correct paperwork is found.

Think I would rather have a Coventry Eagle. Same sort of bike without the snobbery of the Brough.

Seen a few Hargan saws mostly BSA powered, bloody dangerous things they were. My dad was using one in the forest near Dorrigo, NSW in the late 1940's when the blade hit something in the log and a piece of the blade flew off and put a hole in his brand new hat only just missing his scalp. He wouldn't use one again and went to work in the timber mill instead of the forest.

Do you know what state he lived in?
Cannot find any funeral notices for Colin D Hutton (plenty of other Huttons) so he may still be around. Any other things that you know that may help with finding him?
Yes, it's a big country but the interweb makes it small again.

Do you know of the VJMC (Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club Inc) or any area branches locally that have people with similar bikes that may be able to help you?
