A first production FE made around 1927/1928. Possibly predates the move to Miller Rd.

Note the crude magneto platform, very quickly changed after this first batch of engines. Fitted with plain main bearings and a Brown & Barlow carburettor. Most probably a unique survivor, previously part of the late John Uptons collection at Grateley in Hampshire.
