Many thanks to Bob Story for these pictures of a bike he spotted at the 2009 Popham Bike Meet. Thanks to Leon for pointing out the following:

“I asked a Royal Enfield friend, and he can recognise bits of RE amongst the cycle parts. He also suggested that the motor looked “a bit AJS”, and after a scrounge I came up with the AJS 996cc “S2″ twin new for the 1931 season. It must have lasted only a year or two because by 1933 I think AJS twins used the familiar Matchless motor with the round timing chest and square tappet covers. I’ve never seen one in the flesh. Apparently the bike goes by the name of “1929 Jackson Indomitable 1000″. Given the motor and gearbox, “1929″ is an interesting date – perhaps the gas lights take it back a few years.
