Hello, I'm an English old bike enthusiast living in France. I have my collection of post vintage Triumphs here with me. An aquaintance has just been given a stylson motorcycle fitted with a JAP sidevalve motor (with detachable fir cone valve caps) of I would guess 250cc. The gearbox is a burman with I think 2 speeds. The bike is complete with the exception of the stub fitting carb, the addition of which would get it running.Everything is there even the leather panniers & what I would think is an aftermarket dynamo lighting set operating from the outside flywheel.There is no provision for a speedo which may help to date it.I seem to remember that JAP engine nos are not very helpful but for the record this one is 8.27394B I am trying to persuede the new owner not to try & restore it badly but I don't hold out much hope & of course he wants to know what it's worth, imagining some huge figure.Can you offer any advise or comments please. Thank you for your time. Paul Timberlake.

stylson 350cc sv 1926
hallo dit is een stylson uit 1926 (waarschijnlijk) dit is niet echt bekend. Het is naar mijn mening de oudste stylson voor zover bekend.
Translation: Hello this is not a stylson is from 1926 (probable) this really known. It is to my opinion the most old stylson insofar as known.

Can you please change the message on your site till this:? I have an unrestored Stylson motorcycle from the thirties. Originally it has been equipped with a single cylinder ohv 250 cc with two exhaust ports. Best regards ?smund Johannes Sletten
