Hi. Have just been given ownership of my Grandfathers Sunbeam Lion, that he brought new in 1935, sold to my uncle in 1948 and it stayed on the road until 1960.
A restoration was attempted in 1993, and is passable although not brilliant.
I am in the process of getting it ready for MOT and riding, has anyone got any instructions / help with regard to operating and starting, things to watch out for, any tips etc!. Only ever ridden post 1980 bikes to date!
