  1. I am interested in starting a Welbike registry, please include the frame number, present country Welbike resides, either restored or original and if known, where it served during the war and any brief history you might know. Please include if it is a Mark I , Mark II etc..but do not include any personal information that may lead to any theft etc. This is simply an effort to try and Identify how many Welbikes still exist out of the 3954 that were made. Thanks for your time ! Yes I do own one, #3088, currently undergoing restoration, i understand the trepidation on anyones part.1
  2. Hi All, I was referred to this forum while searching for Royal Enfield Flying Flea parts. Looks like the forum is run well with respectful guidelines after reading the section; before I post. My Dad is 82 years now, I am a lucky son that grew up around classic English motorcycles, mainly BSA, Ariel, Norton. My Dad has owned a few M20 BSAs through the years, he still has his 1940 WDM20 that ran 104.6 miles per hour on a beach down here in 1960 on alcohol fuel.....but that’s another story🙂 1 January 2020 my Dad bought a Royal Enfield Flying Flea. The bike had been stored since 2008 after the owner passed. As a good son I volunteered to rebuild the very seized left out in the weather 125cc engine for him. Through UK RE club feedback we learned that new bike shipping documents show the bike was delivered to Whitehalls New York City RE dealer linked to Stokvis & Zonen Dutch RE dealer that were shutdown during German occupation Netherlands. This little Flea was then returned new to the UK when NYC agent closed eventually forwarded to Australia. I had some trouble pulling the 125cc apart and now need a flywheel side crank. Better introduce myself first🙂 regards, David Tasmania Australia
  3. I have a 1941 AJS 350 (I know it's also a Matchless depending) The frame and engine and most other parts are correct to 1941 but it's on a Q plate as it was used for VMCC racing a few years ago. I would like to find it's history so I can get it back into standard trim (I think it's RAF issue as frame is black and never been painted and this is important!! has NO frame serial number as with most war bikes) If we could hunt it down on engine number ??? All ideas and help welcome.

  9. Hello everyone. I'm Steampunk. Lifelong bike nut, progressed onto Landrovers and now looking for a pre 1960 4X4 ex-army truck to see the world from. Joined to discover a wealth of information about the various models available before taking the plunge and buying. Any advice, particulary regarding Bedford RL's and Green goddess's and diesel engine options would be very welcome. In return I can offer twenty years experience in the motorcycle trade, not especially military but most brands. Not great with computers but I've made it this far!! Stay cool.
