A very rare opportunity to own this beautiful and rare Zenith V Twin Gradua 500cc JAP V twin 1918 super sports.

She has been dry stored since 2004 when she was last used.
I have owned her now for over 12 years, but I have to move on.

When I purchased the bike-here say had it that it was purposed built for a rider who competed in the 500 twin section at Brooklands. There is no written evidence of this but its a great bit of provenance if it is true?

what can I say about it? I used to ride the zenith on a private lane but haven't done now for a few years. She has just been admired in my garage. So time for the next custodian...

She will need recommissioning before use due to the time she has been stood

The bike is still on its original registration number with the DVLA. on a V5 log book

Please do not hesitate to ask for more details. I would consider a Possible part exchange with a British Motorcycle Ariel Square Four / Velocette Venom or similar British Motorcycle ,
