Was at the tip today, stopped a bloke chucking this in the scrap, but only momentarily. They wouldn't save it for me because I couldn't get it in the car and I needed to pick my kids up from school. Tell me it was actually scrap and not some vintage barn find worth a fortune!!!

Well worth saving and a Rudge as James pointed out :(

It may have needed a fair bit of work but despite the degraded chrome, look at the paint quality :shock:

PROPER black enamel from the olden days, the paint would have cleaned up like new :facepalm:
