WX179 is my 1929 Isle-of-Man Senior TT works machine. It is entered into the H&H Auction at the National Motorcycle Museum on November 9th. It was bought by Derrick Shire on his 19th birthday in 1949, and he never got round to restoring it. After his death in 1997 it was bought by David Earnshaw, who sold it at a Beaulieu autojumble to Paul d’Orleans, known worldwide as “The Vintagent”. He handed it over to Chris Odling for restoration, but little was done over an eight-year period, and so I was able to buy it from Paul d’Orleans. It took me four years to restore, after which it won the President’s Award at the Scott Rally for four years running.
