Could this be of in­ter­est for a fu­ture ar­ti­cle? I have just bought this Dot De­mon. “It’s all there and just wants putting back to­gether,” said the seller (where have I heard that be­fore?).

Since buy­ing the bike, I joined the club and found it to be a 1964 ma­chine. It is now fin­ished and run­ning. I found a few sur­prises in the en­gine, such as an al­pha crank, elec­tronic ig­ni­tion and dif­fer­ent clutch.

It is my in­ten­tion to get it go­ing and ride it in pre-65 this year. I am do­ing it as I have an affin­ity – I orig­i­nate from Manch­ester and am friends with Bill Barugh Jr. It was his fa­ther who al­lowed me my first ride on a mo­tor­bike many years ago... so it is out of re­spect for Bill as well. It is pos­si­ble it will be on the Dot stand at Telford.
