Hi all,

I've had the above bike for 50 years. It's followed me round various house moves in bits for storage. It's complete and I think it's now time to find a new home for it as I feel if I didn't restore it during lockdown, I never will.

I have the original green cardboard log book which says that it was the model with the full fairing but when I purchased it as a teenager it had been converted to the a bike. I have the head for the fairing and a number of other spare parts plus manual and original Gander and Grey receipts. I think that because the bike originally had a fairing, the front mudguard may be from a Triumph.

I'd like the bike to go to a good home to be restored and used so I'm looking for advice on how to find that kind of person. I'll consider donating it to a club if any would be interested.

You'll likely to have enthusiasts on here, or could try the REOC pages on facebook etc.
Whereabouts are you based? It might be that a club member is local to you and can have a look.

Happy to post on the REOC page and signpost people here. Do you have an idea of what you would like for it?
Sounds a nice project.

I have no idea what it's worth and to be honest, I mostly want it to go to a good home, someone who's going to use it.

What sort of value would it have do you think?

That's a really hard question to genuinely answer, I'll post on the REOC page and direct to here.
Some photos might well help.

I've posted on the REOC facebook page, lots of knowledgeable people. That way you should get a proper price.
I might be interested but lets see what people say about the value

It proved hard to find photos. Here's a couple from before it was dismantled for storage.
