Hey Guy. the D1 was my first brit bike back in 79....great little bikes, mine was an ex GPO bike...butterfly choke is still the nicest design to date...cool
I had one too, second brit bike. First was a James autocycle. Had the timing so far out on the chook I actually had it running backwards which was a giggle. It wouldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding and the single speed 98cc James had way more pull with that nice brass flywheel.
My 11 year old Daughter and I renovated one last year (D3 plunger), as she got the itch helping me on my A 65. Now she wants to build a bantam racer / cafe as one of the blokes at the 'Ace' was a bit disparaging! Hint, don't let young girls near bantams, they get 'bird flew'! Dave South Australia
