Great Story shame we here in

Great Story shame we here in Australia have lost this R5 SS however it's gone to the right place. Interesting to read more about Frank Pratt, when I checked with BMW archive on the history of my R51/3 it was an original Australian bike imported by Pratt Motorcycles in Geelong in 1952. Just hope that Frank had a chance to take it for a quick test ride. See this article for a great summary of Frank Pratt's life.
