There is quite a nice looking 1922 model 7 on UK Ebay at the moment looks quite good as far as originality goes and worth borrowing the pictures  ;)

Tried looking for this on EBAy, but no luck. Do you have the item code no or something Please.
Thanks

Hi Anji,

I have sent you a sketch of a Model 7 tank. It may not be exactly the same as yours, but it will give a very good idea of the lining layout.

The magneto is likely to be an EIC, although an ML would work just as well. The carburetter could be either a B&B or an AMAC type 15 HYDM or HYSP. The choke diameter is probably 1" although you could use a 15/16"

I hope that helps!

Thanks Paul. Great help. There is nil info here in India about Sunbeams. I have restoration manuals of almost everything under the sun, but cant find any on this bike. By the way, I cant access the sketch you sent. Could you please resend.
Attaching a few photos of the tank. Does it look right to you ? Also attaching a photo of My Flash we restored 6 years back. Take her often to Goa ( 550 kms ea way )

Hi Anji
I have a few photos of models around that era but not specifically the 1921. The photos below are from a 1923 and 1926 I will also post photos of a 1917 model.

Thanks Graham
Will try & post a picture of my tank tomorrow. Not able to find anything on the net regarding the oil hand pump, mag & carb but will continue trying. Ride safe

Hi,
My Sunbeam tank seems to have been modified in the past. Can someone help with either a photo or drawing of the tank so that I can restore it back to original
Thanks
Anji
