Rust in peace – The Famous James

Another rusty little moped, this time spotted in Kangaroo Valley, NSW. Turns out to be a ‘James Superlux Autocycle’ with a little Villiers 98cc two-stroke engine made from 1949-53. http://simplywizard.co.uk/folders/level3/suplxl3.htm

Seeing these old bikes always makes me imagine who the person was who bought them originally and for what purpose? I always wonder how many owners a bike has had over the years, and all the good times they had getting around onboard.
