Maybe heading for South Australia for the 5th. National Veteran Rally commencing 19 September through 23 September at Nuriootpa in Barossa Valley? - if I see them I'll let you know!
BTW - who's going to offer an ID?

A 4hp (600cc) model.  By the lay of the exhaust pipe (if original to the machine) it would seem to be a 1916 to 1919.  It could be a 3-1/2hp (500cc), but these were supposed to have been last offered in 1915.  Three-panel petrol tanks were used up till 1916.  So assuming all correct, my guess is a 1916 model.

The panels may not be correct but that is a 1915 4HP - quite rare I think as while the 4HP was introduced in 1915 the mechanicals were changed a bit (oil pump, etc) for the 1916 range. It was at the rally. The other machine is a B&B. On the ute as well was a 3.5HP 1914 model in pieces that I now have here !!
