East Grinstead/West Sussex 350 Manx sought.

Posted by alain_jerrard at March 08. 2017

Hello from sunny New Zealand...

Read in the August 2002 edition of Classic Motorcycle the following ad.

1947 350 Manx, rebuilt, 7,500 (English drinking coupons) Tel. 01342 315650 West Sussex.

I'm looking for my Dad's "47 350 Manx and traced it to Kent in 1971, so phoned this number. Unfortunately its no longer obtainable and the magazine has no record of the owner's name.

Anybody know anything? Would love to find this bike to discover whether it's my Dad's.

Cheers! Alain

Hi Alain

I live only 4 miles from East Grinstead and know many of the old classic bikers there so will ask around to see if anyone knows of its whereabouts.

Hello Bob

Thanks, appreciate your help. My Dad's bike was registered EOW 375, but that number now on a car, but I've tracked his bike through various owners to Kent in 1971. Apparently it or a similar Manx has been seen at a Boxing Day meet at the Pied Bull pub in Farningham? So I chase every 350 Manx I know of in that area... just in case!
