    Dear Sir

    I have just found this image of this machine very similar to the one my father rode in the 1950s
    He was a works rider for DMW and rode in the scottish six days trial several times during the early 50s

    Do you have any information about the possible whereabouts of his machine if it still exists or has anybody heard of my father. His name was J.C.L. Bodenham and he lived in the West Midlands.

    Yours Sincerely

    Nigel Bodenham

    • Hi Nigel,

      I have a dmw very similar to the model above that I am restoring. Do you have any more information or photos of the these bikes?

        Hi Joe

        Im afraid i dont have anything other than some good info on DMWs in the book by Don Morley

        called Classic British 2 stroke Trials bikes available on E Bay.

        Have you heard of a DMW museum in the west of england maybe Hereford?
        The man had several bikes one of which i think was my fathers.

        Good luck with the restoration project.


      • Hi Joe, did you finish your DMW?

      I have a 250DMW which I am getting restored it was in the 62 and 63 Scottish ridden by Geordie Forbes. The original registration is down to Comerfords of Thames Ditton whether Forbes was riding for them or privately I am unsure.
