Hi Kev,

without seeing a pic i cant be certain, but could your engine be a BITSA? not unusualy for people to cobble engines together to keep them going.

OR

it could be a one that Villiers made up like that out of surplus stock. one things for certain, if thats the case, it cant be any older than the youngest components on the machine, as if Villiers did actually assemble this from stock, you can put parts on the engine with dates that havent occurred yet! on that basis this would probably be 1958, could be wrong mind.

Cheers.

Paul

Kev,

my apologies, didnt look into the site fully,

however, searching with the full ace title, came up with a little info

http://www.urban75.net/vbulletin/threads/251081-Hambrook-House-on-the-corner-of-Brixton-Hill-amp-Porden-Rd

this is a discussion about the main offices there, it says they were built in 1959, that could be the date when they started at the brixton location?

Cheers.

Paul
