no, it's not british, but i think it may have been produced in a british colony (which includes a good part of the world).

Hi Tony,

That hint was all I needed.

Its a 1950-1953 Tilbrook. They were made in Australia. The engine was modified Villiers.

Great trivia!

The Villiers comlete power plant was easy to spot, especially if one has had & worked on so many through the yrs. Still the leading link f/rork & rest of the bike looked so Coninental. Mind you the Brits were deep into leading & trailing link f/forks.
