I got my C11 around 1970 and rode it around the bush tracks for a couple of years running off the battery which I'd charge over night with a model train transformer set on 12 volts. Only first and third gears in the 3-speed box, it was my first proper bike but was very bare. Eventually the timing side bush went and finding another case the same, with the smoother blending-in breather molding, proved impossible. That's why I'm sure it was a W year, (engine only it seems) all the others had the more abrupt breather protrusion. Anyway I found all the missing bits like chainguard and speedo and rebuilt it for the road, put it in the showroom and it sold within a few days. That half paid for the first and only B25T that came into the wreckers, around '73. I had to have it of course.
Many endearing memories of the C11, like cutting new clutch corks every few weeks, due to the missing second gear and very steep hills. And I loved those front forks, 20 inch wheels and in-built stubbie-holder in the tank

Most servers, like eBay
, will allow external links to their images but some don't. And images linked from eBay
like those above will disappear in a few months when they're removed from the server.
The best way is to upload images to your own webspace and link from there.
