This pic is from an ad for the Powerbike J50, from around 1939, I've never actually seen a Powerbike in these colours, has anyone else? Is it black and white, or black and cream. Mike

Didn't think of silver John, a bit flash for 1939, with a war imminent. A photo below of the period. Mike

Hi John, just been looking in Arthur's book, on page 109, the tank has a dull chromium plated finish, lined blue. Mike
