There you have it. A genuine, original sales catalogue from 1935. A youthful 87 years old! I wish I look as good as this if I ever make it to 87.

Before you moan about the price. Try to find another one that is available. I paid a lot for this but I don’t now think I will have a New Imperial motorcycle as I am slimming down my collection of bikes. So, it ought to go to an enthusiast who will enjoy it.

Viewing: This catalogue isn’t inexpensive like the reproductions, so please come and check it over before you decide to buy.

Shipping: I will do International shipping. It will be carefully shipped and will have tracking to your door.

Payment: Paypal is fine. Bank transfer is fine too. (I have euro and GBP accounts). Cash on collection is fine too.
