1961 Panther 645cc Model 120 & Watsonian Sidecar
Registration no. SBR 811
Frame no. 28007
Engine no. 61 2A 8558
This Panther combination was purchased new from Tom Cowie Motorcycles in Sunderland, whose brass plaque is still attached. The first owner had the 1953 Watsonian child/adult sidecar fitted on a Blacknell chassis originally while the current chassis is a 1964 Panther item, complete with spare wheel. 'SBR 811' has been restored only partially, the frame and tinware remaining in original condition. The wheels were rebuilt by Northeast Wheelbuilding, a new Armours exhaust fitted and the mag-dyno overhauled by FTW in Sheffield. The engine benefits from a recent top-end rebuild and is yet to be run in, while the sidecar is sound, boasting new glazing and tonneau. The recorded mileage of 16,774 is supported by every MoT certificate and all tax discs from 1962, together with all bills and receipts accumulated during the present ownership. Dry stored all its life, the machine also comes with MoT/tax to 31st July 2012 and Swansea V5.
