Comments:

This is virtually a one-owner bike with its original finish and original equipment.  An excellent example on which to base a restoration of a bike which has been incorrectly refinished or had its components changed.  Note the distinctive lugs and other details.  The lamp bracket boss on the front fork was a commonly fitted option: it is not often that one sees it supporting a Miller dynamo lamp of the correct vintage.
