What to Expect

Bonnie engine in oil-in-tube frame, better forks and finicky conical hub brake…new ones had variable build quality, if the tolerances went the right way then it wasn’t half bad; if they didn’t it fell apart rapidly. There are still lots of bikes with questionable mechanical integrity and it’s quite easy to buy a dog. Good ones are relatively smooth, oil tight and quiet. Later bikes had five speeds and disc brakes. Also single carb version.
