That price is a bit better. An original is around the $250AU mark.
Looks like your dressed for some painting or have KKK relaxed their dress code  *smile*.

It's nice, but off an old Yank motor surely?

Muskrat at that price it's no wonder I've not seen one before! *smile* I changed the picture just to see if it was possible while we were changing over to the new site. It's my spraying attire from the week I did the frame and tank, without it little flakes of metal get everywhere. *rant*
Topdad as for repairing the roads with nuclear waste, you might not be far off the mark. The stuff I ran through a couple of months ago has left marks on my casings that will not polish out. Still really p*ssed off about that, in 34 years riding the A10 I have never seen anything like it. *angry*

For you doubters,
                                That was fitted to Road Rockets which were sent to countries where riders preferred to spear pedestrians rather than slice them, viz. Australia & the U.S.  *ex*

Art Deco ?
they would be an ideal candidate for that spray chrome featured in another mail

And I tink that the Newcastle rail depot made more of them than BSA did.

Why do you think that, Trevor?
Which rail depot would that be?
I spent 2/3 of my life working in the rail industry and never saw or heard of any Rocket ornaments being made.

I reckon you could probably get something pretty similar at Sexpo, & spray it with chrome paint!!

Because just about every rocket I have seen in Newastle has the rocket on it and most of the owners referred to them as FO's.
I was led to believe they all came from the workshops somewhere.
ASAIK there was no aluminium foundry in the Sydney yards except the one in the Wilson St lab.
