1927 P&M Panthette, 250cc

Got one of these in the shed Have You? 1927 P&M Panthette, 250cc
 Pic and info from here.
"At the Olympia Show in October 1926 the Granville Bradshaw designed Panthette stole
the attention from every other machine on offer. The Panthette bristled with innovations. A transverse V-twin with horizontally split cranckcase, valve spring arrangement utilising laminated springs, enclosed alloy rocker box, motorcar type 4-speed transmission, multi-plate clutch etc. Only 6 are known to survive. One in the Sammy Miller collection, one in the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull, two in privat collections in the U.K., one in the Dutch Branse Collection and this particular one."
