Hello Jeff, What you have is the SW model which is a very diserable bike. An improvement on the TS having a CW all chain drive clutch and using the 2 speed TS type box with the addition of brackets for and including a kickstarter. Looks fairly complete to me and I cant fault what I can see except for the gas cannister being upside down. The toolboxes you can obtain from Swap Shop(add in just bikes) they cost but are good quality. Tyres are avail from VMCC NSW (26 x2 1/2) . Front brake can be made up. Check out Mackas on forum I think there is a pic there. The biggest problem I think you will have is a total restoration or an as found touch up. Whatever you decide it looks like a winner.   regards Al

Hi Al
Thanks for correcting the gas cannister, yes I have taken a long time to get the bike to this stage, I am however missing the oil pump sight glass and to date have had no success any ideas

Hi Jeff
       Sight glasses for the oil feed are available to members from the LDMCC pre-war Spares section in both designs, cylindrical for the early tanks and the 1.1/2" diameter circular for the later models. Chris.
