vehicle identification Dunkley / Mercury Whippet
I have purchaced a Dunkley / Mercury Whippet which was a barn find to restore and I am attempting to source the bikes original details (if possible) to aid re-registering it. The number plate is :- TYG 700 (or could be TYC 700). Does any one know where this info could be found as the company went into liquidation in the late 1950's/60's? Derby English
