    Rotrax model?

    Can anyone identify which model Rotrax this is?
    The story goes like this - I was given this old frame in really ratty condition (thick layers of hand-painting etc) and took it to the Rotrax shop in Shirley to see if I could find out anything about it. The old guy behind the counter was less than welcoming until I showed him the frame and asked him whether it was worth restoring. He looked at it and warmed up considerably, "Oh yes that's a Rotrax ______ from 1953" and can I remember what model it was; can I heck.
    To be fair, this was back in the 90's and my memory's not what it was.
    The upshot was I got it restored by Rotrax and it hung in my shed for years until I built it up in about 2006 just to see what it was like to ride.
    So, anyone out there have a clue?Pict0062..jpgPICT0061..jpg
