I have found a genuine mark four in Bathurst and recently bought it, Iintend to restore it hopefully within a two to three year time frame as a bike I can ride on rallies and local club runs. This bike was verified by Dave Lawrence from the London Douglas Club as the real deal (thanks so much as it has really made my Christmas).
I quoted Dave the engine and frame number and his research has found that it left the factory bound for Australia on 5 May 1950. I am asking if anyone has a restored or complete mark four in NSW I can shoot detailed photographs of which will help shorten the restoration time and advise personally some areas to concentrate on. This help was given to me in mid 1978 when I photographed the CW belonging to Kevin Cass in his motorcycle dealership in Unanderra which helped me immensely during the long rebuild of my 25 CW. The mk 4 left the factory in polychromatic blue and while reasonably complete is missing the complete exhaust system (woffle box and short headers) and a few bits and pieces.
Any help regarding links within this forum and key advice as to parts suppliers which may help would be appreciated.
