    Excellent, nothing wrong with classic bikes.......with milk bottle tops for brakes...

    You need to go back another decade or so in design, and add girder forks and rigid frame into the 'fun' mix

    Along with the Matchless WD G3L, which is slowly going back together., whilst looking for bits for it I always came across cheap BSA M20 bits, I have a late war BSA M20 frame and a set of war time crank cases, also picked up a rear frame for this a few months back ...... (the girder forks are a bit on the expensive side if you can find them and don't fancy the New ones from India).

    The rear frame has the side car lug, which at first I thought was post war (post war had two lugs) the single lug was for an RAF contract during the war, approx only 700 made. I picked it up west side of London, the guy was building up an M21...... as we got talking he noted my interest was WD bikes but he showed me his collection of Brit bikes......... I was gobsmacked, he must have had over £250,000.00 worth of bikes in his other shed.......all shiny and new.

    After that it was another train Journey to the East side of London, to pick up a hard tail G3L frame....... the G3L frame was to build up a repro WD bike as I have a lot of bits which have accumulated after buying boxes of bits but only require one part etc, although I do fancy a G3L trials bike so not sure on that yet..........

    I live in outer West London and used to have a 1940 built BSA WDM20, so may know of him?
    Sold my WDM20 back in 2001, still miss it, but had great fun with it and used it for a lot of veterans events as well, including 1st Airborne Recce Association reunions when dear old Chalky White was still alive, who had been the 1st AB Recce Don R at Arnhem and was probably the last person to escape from the bridge area back to Oosterbeek, albeit a somewhat hazardous journey by m/c.

    The Guy was an Indian gent., his interest was 60-70's Civilian Brit Bikes, he collected rare editions or one offs, he had at one time cornered the market for a particular Enfield Continental Gt....... ,
    He parked them in groups, as rode all of them too, but they were museum quality.

    At the time I didn't know the true value of the rear frame I was picking up, as it was a best offer deal........ and as I thought a post war one. I have to thank Ron Pier for the relevant info regarding the RAF contract BSA M20's etc.

    Geoff,
    That is odd, as I too have an Indian gent who buys all things Britishicon, motobikes and including SMLE's because he says they are so easily fixable.
    Recently a neighbour a farmer sold off all his tractors and Combines via a major farm seller, bid cards internet bidding etc.
    The only pieces the Indians wanted was the non computerised Combine Harvesters as they could repair them easier in India by hand....................amazing and very proactive of them. They were bidding against each other on line and at the actual auction, needless to say the Combine went for more than the book had it down for!

    'Tonight my men and I have been through hell and back again, but the look on your faces when we let you out of the hall - we'd do it all again tomorrow.' Major Chris Keeble's words to Goose Green villagers on 29th May 1982 - 2 PARA
