The Shillington JAP

Full custom, built in a shed, motorcycle. Engine is a 1934 JAP found unused in a crate, gearbox is a three speed Albion. Lots of brass bits, some are brass others are brass plated but all are shed built. I love the minimilist lines of boardtrackers and wanted to get as close as possible to this in a road legal bike. Internal throttle and clutch cable help in this. Stop light was an eBay find, a very rare Eveready egg shaped bicycle light, converted to Led and internal battery. Saddle is based on a Messenger with my own design of ‘suspension’ the gear lever has two brass balls due to a mate coming into the shed and saying ‘ man, your going to need brass balls to ride that on the road!’.
