Jim's 1942 WLA

The bike is a 1942 wla built in the boardtrack style. I have owned the bike for 11 years. When I bought it both oil and petrol tanks were split and painted drab green, these were repaired and painted in red enamel along with various other parts in black enamel. the engine had a few oil leaks which were also sorted out.

Wheels were rebuilt 19 x 5 rear and 19 4.50 front.It has an amal 930 carb and boardtrack style exhaust. The frame and forks are standard wla 45. Since all the issues were sorted out the bike has given me very little trouble. Its not fast but great fun to ride. It took a while to get used to the suicide clutch.

Kind regards Jim.
