The rear “plungers” on the Clubman Special were an optional extra at a cost of 15 pounds (there’s no pound sign on this NZ computer). The Clubman should have cylinder wall oiling via a Pilgrim pump on the left hand crankcase door, a triangular oil tank on the rh side between the middle and upper rear frame tubes for chain oiling, two leather fronted tool boxes, a 4 1/2 gallon petrol tank, 1 1/8th Amal type 29 carb with twin float chambers, TT transfer port covers and a spring-up rear stand. The internals were specially finished to increase performance (tested by MotorCycling at 91.8 mph) and had 3 ring pistons. The prototype model also had 21″ front and 20″ rear wheels.
