That looks like a Dominator to me......

BTW I like the tests of your bikes in Real Classic.

Hi Sandy,

   I think you are starting on a very steep learning curve. If it walks like a featherbed and quacks like a featherbed, it's a .................

Best wishes, Richard.

P.S. The 2 cylinders are a bit of a give-away.

OOPS, i must apologise i have shown the wrong bike, not my 99 but for my 1957 ES2, this could not be a senior moment could it?

Whatever it is - it's a striking looking machine. Any pics of the ES2?

I ended up having to "cut down" an Atlas rear mudguard to fit my 1953 single down tube ES2.  It's a bitsa and I was missing a lot of cycle parts.  The Atlas item looks close to original.  It was, of course, a chrome piece so I had to blast and paint it "stoved enamel" black!   I had to fabricate a center stand.
RGM Norton has helped a lot with the mechanical bits.
Cheers All!

Hello.  i couldn't find a chain guard a while ago for my 19s single down tube. so i found one that would do. it was off a bantam. i had to cut it down and remove a bracket half way along and one at the front and redrill the holes and make a couple of spacers. its not to bad.

That Bantam chain guard looks so right, I don't think anyone will complain
