That looks brilliant those 102 are very elegant.
Don’t think I’ve ever seen one just the square blocks.

The Centuries and the Forties have square blocs with removable heads and that is the sort of motors I have rather than the round block with integral head on the 102's

I understand, I've had a couple of 102s but this is lovely with all its bronze and copper and it runs beautifully, as quiet as a mouse,mechanically wise and to think that it may have been used in our war effort is pretty humbling,I look at it now and treat it with a good deal of respect and to think 75yrs ago it might well have been running flat out for hours on end,fantastic fantastic engine, take a bow,British Seagull.

Lovely! Can l add SD685 to the SD registry? If so may l have the magneto JM # and if the clutch lever is plain with no inscription. Also these early ones had a B number B#### on other side of crankcase from engine number. Love the early P3's!
