James titled their sales brochure for the 1959 model range 'Money Saving Motor Cycles'. The Cadet model for that year was powered by a Villiers 147cc two stroke engine, and was said to offer 'fine performance plus a standard of comfort worthy of a much more costly machine'. It would certainly not have consumed much petrol per mile. The Cadet was purchased by the deceased owner at an indeterminate time, and required work then. Having been stored outside for a number of years, albeit beneath a tarpaulin, it is in need of restoration, and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this lot.
