    Registered 30th May 1950 this Meteor had been with the previous owner for some 45 years during which time he had used the bike for many continental tours and rallies. A matching URM/RFM frame number example it is understood the engine cases are from a later Comet.

    Supplied with a small history file that has old MoT’s and an original buff logbook from 1964 the bike is fitted with 4 leading shoe front brakes and a nice set of period Craven luggage panniers and its original registration number.

    Having been laid up for while the bike has just received some re commission to road use with full service and new tyres. In good running / ridding order the engine does not smoke but is a bit noisy but has plenty of power. Generally this is a sound example even if a bit scruffy but usable as is.
