    sorry for the poor pictures

    this is a mystery bike to be honest......which kinda makes it even cooler

    it could be one of the over 300 manufacturers using the high quality JAP motors and chater lea castings

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JA_Prestwich_Industries

    this is a great opportunity to get into a actual teen era motorcycle on the cheap and enjoy like the big boys (like american teen era flying merkel/hd/excelsior etc)

    i can point you in the direction to obtain the few parts not included (not overly expensive either)

    it does have a era correct carburetor (brass) and fenders that would work

    i have freed up the motor and the inside was nice,original cast big ring piston was beautiful

    not pictured is the parts like lifters/cam chest which are all present.......easy project here in the antique mc world....i would be all over it but i just have way too much other stuff to build

    $10,000
