1962 James 149cc Cadet
Registration no. 6085 RK
Frame no. EL15A 11973
Engine no. 8007M
James's first post-war '125' was the ML, a 122cc Villiers 9D-engined machine derived from a successful military design. It was superseded in 1948 by a new model similar to the 98cc Comet but using heavier cycle parts and the 10D engine. For 1950 the 122cc machine was named 'Cadet' and by the time the L15 model offered here was made, featured the 149cc AMC engine and revised cycle parts incorporating a telescopic front fork, swinging-arm rear suspension and full-width hubs.

This L15 Cadet is offered with expired MoT certificate (1978), current Swansea V5C document and old-style V5 recording that the vendor's father acquired the machine in May 1983.
