Civilian History:
This bike was sold off at auction in 1982 and bought by the father of a good friend in Belgium- it remained in Belgium, stored collecting dust, unused from that time, until I eventually acquired it in July 2016 and repatriated back to the UK - I finally got it registered in June 2017
It remains in as found service condition which is very rare these days and you can still see the period Customs tag still attached on the pannier frame.
