I was at the Pate Swap Meet over the weekend and saw a bike I really loved. It said it was a 1953 Famous James. It was pretty rough but looked complete. They were asking $1000. Never heard of one. It had a single cylinder with the carb hanging off the back side of the cylinder under the seat. It had a suicude shifter on the right side of the tank. Over all it just had a really great look about it. Anyone know the history of these?
