    Spotted this in a Vintage Motorbikes FB Swap and Sell group... $8000
    It looks a lovely bike... one of my Dream Bikes and 1955 was a very good year :)

    Just a pity I cant afford to buy it right now...

    "The 1951 TWN BDG 250 was powered by a 248 CC Split Case single twin cylinder air cooled motor. A split case single used two pistons and jugs with a single forked rod and a single head and firing chamber. It produced 12 HP and had a reported top speed of 68 MPH." Ref: http://www.bike-urious.com/1951-twn-triumph-bdg-250/

    Looks like triumph germany split off and became "TWN" before disappearing after a merger in 1956. Very curious bike for sure.

    The muffler on the white framed bike doesn't look like it's standard, so it's no longer Lams approved

    Any frame mods mean it has to have engineers certificate to be registered in NSW. And there are so many other things that insurance companies would just love to reject a claim for that I would not want a learner rider to be anywhere near it.
