Neil.
Good job I don't know how to post a picture, or you wouldn't stand a chance *whistle* *beer* seriously though it does not look a bad bike. I will say one thing, at least you ride it, are you still using the removable carrier? I have just made a new carrier up for my plunger A10 Golden Flash. *yeah*

 Great choice TTJohn. I love my '51 A7, had her for 30 odd years. Just did 150 miles on her on Sunday, 60-65MPH most of the way and didn't miss a beat.
You'll really enjoy riding her.
Cheers

Well it will be a stable mate for my 1957 Golden Flash plunger, I should be picking it up either tomorrow or Wednesday so, as soon as I get it I will send you or Neil some photo's, its not been on the road for twenty years but it has been well looked after in a garage, the reason I went for this is that I knew where it was and had already made an offer but, had to wait till I sold my 1952 Alvis now that Alvis has left the building I'm o.k. ;D

Thank you very much.

My baby is under wraps until the season of salt passes:  meanwhile I enjoy looking at the photos I've taken.

Thanks Wozza and Stephen.

I've got the dual-seat but decided that as 'Er indoors' said she would not be riding pillion I'd fit a single saddle which I feel makes the bike look more interesting; more 'vintage'.
