Great looks, and probably a great bike\engine too. If I had the money + if it was close to here I'd buy (and place it in my living room :O)

I've just been browsing EBay looking at W1 parts. It's very interesting to see how similar many parts are to the A. The crankshaft is very interesting as it has roller big ends. I don't see evidence of a starter.
