Does any one know much about these? Just picked one up for $400, complete but in parts. Want to make a bit of a bobber, or are they too rare for this. It's a 1930 model, 350.

Cheers and beers
Jimbob

Hey Jimbob, I spoke to a mate tonight who's into bikes, he said "go for it" enthusiastically (sp?), just said you'd be better not to mess with the tin and trinkets if you're gunna chop it up , by all means chop up the frame etc, but the rest is worth hangin onto. He's building a chopped up WLA Harley.

He said they were pretty flash in their day.

Hi, your panther is more than likely a 350, my advice is dont cut the frame or the tinware as they are a bit hard to find intact,nowdays , I have owned 4 of them over the years , the power output wont excite you !, they have a long stoke/long rod ,small bore combination with a tiny Amal carby slow reving and underpowered they sound unreal with a straight out megaphone, not loud just a sweet sound, it would make a great Sunday ride to the pub bike,they are not sort after but if it was a 600 thats a diff story

My Dad owned a Panther 600. It was a mighty powerful machine in its day. He also owned a Tilbrook, many Nortons, inlduding the 500 Manx and 650 Internationals. He could tear down one of these bikes and rebuild it with one eye tied behind his back, but when it came to cars, he was all thumbs. Dad used to ride me to school in the home made sidecar of his International Norton. As a kid, I used to sit on the Panther and he would start it up for me. I'd relive the "thump-thump-thump" years later when I raced a Yamaha TT500.
