Colin Clark’s Cadwell continues

Thanks again to Dennis Prosser in helping to identify riders from Colin Clark’s images from the late ‘40s and early ‘50s.

I will include any details that Colin may have added to these pictures, but notes are few and far between.

The images this month show a Norton outfit (number 92), with some exuberant riding by the passenger.

And I have also included a mystery bike which appears to be a bit of a special (number 4).

I would guess that the engine is a JAP single but would appreciate any further details.

The fuel system and general construction look a bit rudimentary in parts but with swinging arm rear suspension and telescopic forks it may be later than first impressions indicate.
