I am now a Panther owner...1947 (allegedly) rigid M100 and will be needing...rear frame section, forks wheels clutch Mag, carb, mudguards, other bits in plenty..I am not going for originality so any period parts that can be made to work will be considered..don't even have to be Panther; already have a DMW tank with a Panther badge on it (as found at Shepton autojumble) & and a single sprung saddle of unknown origin; quite fancy girder forks, planning to end up with a Panther-based workhorse. Then I can tell clueless onlookers it has a Vincent Rapide frame & Bantam camshafts...hours of bullshit to look forward to. Any help welcome of course, crank rebuild first wallet-draining endeavour I think.

Sounds like fun Paul :D

Way back a chum of mine produced a chopper Panther, how the purists would cringe :lol: .

Cheers Geoff

Hi Geoff...let them cringe! I wonder has anyone had the nerve to build a "pink" Panther?. Seen some nice home built 1200 V twin specials...so many options!

So good to hear, I'd love to try to do something similar myself if I had money space and energy enough.

I'm like my regular ride, old battered and bit leaky, but still going.

I realised big Panthers complete & useable will be out of my price range for evermore....so I bought about 30% of one & will take it from there.
