This 1929 two speed Sports Squirrel was acquired by the vendor's late husband in 2006 and nothing is known of its mechanical condition or completeness. Prospective buyers should satisfy themselves on both counts in relation to this machine which is sold strictly as seen. On inspection it was noted that at some point there had been an engine change from the original 498cc unit to the 596cc engine presently fitted (they are totally interchangeable). As the catalogue goes to press a new V5C recording the replacement engine has been requested from the DVLA, and this should have arrived by the time of the sale. The only other document on file is a receipt from a previous owner. It is thought that the frame number may have been over-stamped at some time. Careful re-commissioning will be required before taking to the road.
