There are 3 wires adjacent to the dynamo. Do we know what the one looping under the dynamo is?

Re: Forum photo

The extra wire will be the earth, running to the grub screw on the magneto housing.

Thanks, Rik.
So this bike would've been sent to France early in the war?

Re: Forum photo

Bob, almost certainly. The lack of later parts means it can't have stayed in service long. Almost certainly a BEF survivor that reappeared with a new identity after 1945. The populations of Northern France and Belgium have a thousand year history of hiding away anything left by passing armies !
