This bike came from Khandala in dead condition to Hyderabad & was restored by a dear friend of mine who rode it to Puna & back, then to Bangalore & back. It was then sold to the man in the back ground. Presently in Pune. If I am right this bike is also coming to carter.

Is this Shashi's Indian? Maybe Cartier should invite his German Triumph too considering its rarity

There used to be one black and a red Sunbeam that appeared at our local shows which were really in superb condition. I hope they haven't been sold out of Hyd ! Chances are they may have if you say none of the ones remaining are in show condition

DGK Sir,

As far as I know there are 7 Sunbeam S-7's in Hyderabad of which 2 black & 1 red ones used to attend Aug 15th & Jan 26th Rally, however they are in O.K. Condition none of these sunbeams are sold but one is for sale & owner wants exorbitant price.

In an interview my good friend Viveck has confirmed that his lovely and rare Studebaker, Chrysler and 1949 Cheverolet have been entered. This was already known to many. The Studebaker is indeed a unique car, as is the shooting brake Chrysler, and keeping in mind his quality of restoration, both are potential prize winners. I am personally dissapointed though at the decision to enter a very ordinary 1949 Cheverolet, its only claim to fame being originally sourced and restored by Manvendra. Far better cars have not been invited.

Well a 1947 Chevrolet will be joining this car from Bangalore (instead of the Ford AA).

KPS, You state that a 1947 cheverolet will be replacing a ford. How is that possible? I was not aware that entrants could chop and change their entries. I guess if Cartier has come down to 1947 chevys, a 1949 is more desirable, by comparision. The TVS chevy would have been a nice one , where chevys are concerned, but was rejected.

My mistake, I had earlier wrongly confirmed Ford AA instead of the 47 Chevy. The Ford AA was also considered but dropped

Hi Bulldogji just a clarification that Dnyanesh is,not a member of this forum though he does enjoy reading the comments posted from time to time. I thought i should clarify this as his silence is purely due to his abscence :-)

Thanks. But can we persuade Dnyanesh to join? I am sure his contributions will interest many. The bikes shown, and selected are great, though I must confess , my knowledge of bikes is limitied to the few we had, now none, after some rather traumatic accidents. The last bike we had was a BMW with a mousetrap racing carb. The throttle had only two positions. Full open, and closed. In todays traffic can you imagine riding such a bike??
