This is my Series 1 Gem. Its a 1945 machine originally supplied to Billaricay, Essex. I am only the 2nd owner of this old machine. It was in a pretty sorry state when it arrived. It had no compression and some serious rust and transmission problems. It has been totally stripped to component parts and completely overhauled. Many parts have had to be sourced and some remanufactured from templates. Its taken around 2 years and in excess of 1000 hours.
