Sunbeam Lion
Lion 1935
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!
Many Thanks
