I'd agree with that - or at least it went through WWII judging by the rear mudguard.
edit: My gut instinct is that it's 1930s. Is there any chrome plating on it or are the metal parts plain steel painted black (headset, brake levers, etc.)? If not, that might be an indication of wartime production (chromium was a strategic material).
From my knowledge of vintage motorbikes, if there's nickel plate instead, it could push the date back to the 20s or earlier.
