First bike I ever rode - blue Raleigh RSW14 iirc. And even then I only sat on the crossbar, legs too short...

Great photo(s). The wheelbase on that prototype looks slightly longer than the production car or am I making it up?

I see what you mean but I think it's the same as the production versions.

My pinterest feed throws up some amazing images of WW1, WW2 and the cold war, amongst them is this gem... German fighter ace Josef 'Pips' Priller with his BMW 325/55 and Fw190A in 1943...

Its actually a BMW 327/55.

And the photo was actually staged by BMW, as a propaganda photo, as the Fw190A was BMW 801 powered.

Priller, was one of only 3 Luftwaffe pilots to score 100 victories soley in the Western European theatre during WW2. He was also the Luftwaffe pilot with the highest score of victories over Spitfire's....some 68 of his final tally of 101 were Spitfires.

I have a wartime signed photograph in my collection, Priller died in 1961.

Thanks, interesting stuff. I assumed for some reason that the FW was Daimler Benz powered.
