James 1932 D4 350cc Sidevalve

THE FAMOUS JAMES No. D4 350 c.c. S.V. SPORTS DE-LUXE MODEL

The "James" No. D4 S.V. Sports De-Luxe Model is designed to meet the demand of the experienced motor-cyclist for a machine which includes all those features of advanced practice which have proved their reliability and efficiency. The engine is an improved 350 c.c., having ball and roller bearings throughout and an efficient and silent valve gear. The large diameter valves are made of a stainless alloy steel—the piston is made of a special aluminium alloy, which together with other unique features of construction employed is conducive to the production of a powerful and lively unit which may be relied upon to retain its tune over long periods of hard usage. A James design and manufactured job throughout.
