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.
