A motorcycle named Ada...

Here are some recent photographs, featuring my quest to build a factory new KM 20. Using as many original parts as possible, many unique to prewar and early war machines. Where possible, new old stock. The majority of parts are the later, very few are reproduction, some are used. Named after one of my great-great-grandmothers.

Nathan, do you have this part ? It's the early K/WM20 steering damper locking device......

I don't think the K model had the steering damper, they seem to have been retrofitted a bit later on in 1940?

Above average "balloon" tank and NOS Tecalemit grease gun added to the pile.

Nathan, they were only fitted to early WD M20's with the rubber-mounted handlebars and it was designed to prevent the steering damper knob loosening once adjusted correctly.........I've got a NOS one still in KG No.3 paint....no use to me as I no longer have BSA's......
