|'Willing William' - 1922 Model 16H Norton|
One of his modifications was the fitting of the Research Association brake to the rear wheel - see scan from Harwood's 'Speed and how to obtain it' below - which he would probably have done after Sheard's 1923 Senior TT win with the RA braked Douglas. Not long ago, I was sent a copy of a photo of - probably - 'Willing William,' which I attach. Martin tells me it is a mid '22 Birmingham registration and one can see a good bit of detail apart from the RA brake. Gearbox is now an LS and the right hand oil pump pedal is fitted, along with short sporty handlebars - and indistinctly, a sporting side-car.
