R23 1939



Frame number: 111469
engine number: 110803
Include original type plate from 1939

Attractive pre-war motorbike in good technical condition. Engine runs nicely, smooth gear changes, original ignition with advance mechanism works fine. The engine block is still fairly untampered with. Great basic model for a technical overview and to take for a ride, or to restore to its original condition without having to spend forever looking for genuine parts.
