Hello Claudius, I'm not sure I understand the problem but if it's just the size of the transfer you can print water transfers yourself. There is special paper for that. So first reduce the size of the emplem, print and apply.

Sorry for the confusion, Graham, here in Germany we don't use imperial units...

I need about 6 litres per 100 km. That are only 47 miles per gallon. That is still 20% less distance than with your bike and 40% less than what the manual says.

Hi Thomas
By 50% more do you mean that it is doing about 37mpg? If so that does sound very low my model 9 1930 gets around 60 mpg on a run.

Hi all! I had to buy a new decal for the primary chain case. Before applying I scanned it so that everybody can print it on decal paper to have a water transfer. It's the original size. That's much cheaper than regular orders.
Cheers, Thomas

You can get all the Sunbeam transfers from "Classic Transfers" in England. Try their website https://classictransfers.co.uk .

Hi all, I'm a bit puzzled about the fuel consumption of my 1937 Model 9. The maintenance manual says 75 miles per gallon but by experience it takes about 50% more. Is that normal?
Cheers, Thomas

Hello. My 9A from 1932 is in absolute original condition, only 16,800 km since new. Bought new in Cologne, the machine outlasted the robbery by Nazis immured. My question: does anyone know where I can get such a sticker? I need that for my second machine 7A also 1932. Unfortunately I found nothing. The Sunbeam bike is something but with writing. The original ones are without writing, only the sun. Does somebody has any idea? Only Sunbeam I found ... is bicycle . Greetings from Germany. Claudius

The mysteries of ebay, eh? I got a pair of Avon tyres for my imitation (ie modern  :-\ ) Bonneville delivered 'free' yesterday - less than 20 hours after I ordered them from M&P via their ebay shop.
The price was less than my mate could get them for and he has a trade account with them. The same applied to the tyres I got from them for my 3 1/2 Morini a couple of months ago.
