Yes Harit I believe its a SV engine. I spoke to my friend in the UK. And he Drew a different picture
here's what he has to say about the bike
"Sorry but I don't think it's a CTT.

Look at the top ends of the cam followers, they're flat topped, that's what you would find on a side valver,on a OHV there should be a cup to take the pushrod end or a ball end to take a cupped end from a pushrod.

Also look at the shape of the exhaust, that's a side valve shape.

It could be an CSD like this one, a 550 sidevalver that was made 1929 to 1932, it's a post '30 though as it has the later frame, the earlier one had an underslung gearbox rather than the bottom pivoted type this one does.

The wheel is in the frame the wrong way round and the spindle is not even in the slots in the frame for it, it's probably just been shoved roughly in place for the photo.

Triumph used a cross-over gearbox at this time with the output sprocket on the right hand side of the gearbox,where it can be seen in the photos.

I think the front wheel is the wrong way round as well."

If you look at the latest photos that Girish has posted you will notice that the tappet adjustments are on the followers and the top is flat. In an OHV I think the adjustment bolt and nut would be on the rocker arms.

As suggested before, please visit Pune on your next trip. Do contribute to Pune's economy, Karl needs helphe cannot manage that alone.

Maybe you leave your bike on the side, and after visit to Pune you may decide to send it there for work. There is a lot of corrosion, and therefore lots of work to be done.

Cheers harit
