RE:Massey-Harris 12-20
Yes Graham's confirmation of the serial number is correct, Dale emailed last night to confirm and he says there are no traces of green paint anywhere, not even under the layers of red pait or under the fuel tank etc.

We have an original import M-H 12-20 in the west country restored and been in the same family ownership for many years which has always been red, another 12-20 in original farm condition which has been through Cheffins auctions on two occasions has always been red and I have the remains of one which has been stripped for parts, the U frame has definately always been red.

Dad used to tell me about four unstyled 25's painted red from new and working on a large estate farm here in the Lincolnshire Wolds, he used to ride his bike eight to ten miles over the hills to see them working together in the fields, he said it was quite a sight to see four ploghing inline together, he always wanted one to go with his 12-20.

We had better not get into the colour debate on here otherwise it may take over the  entire website!!

Now getting back to the PA's and the early differences discussed yesterday, here are some of my sales brochures showing the flip over radiator cap, flat spoke front wheels and flip over engine oil filler.
