I always like to date these machines from the people on the award card,so Im thinking 1952, Turpin has past his 6d highest award rating by 1954, Jeff Duke is at his peak in 1952, Piggot is on the up while Richards is at his peak,as is Finny ,Hutton past his best by 1954 while Locke's best years were 1950,51 and 52. so,for me, that award card fits a machine from 1951 or 52 :cool:

...Which pretty much corresponds to the cast front models.
I have some castings for one, but not the skill or enthusiasm to build a machine up to suit.
