New Imperial record setter

Feb 1992 Classic Motor Cycle 
New Imperial dealer Harry Nash started tuning a 150cc Model 23 in 1932 and soon was beating larger machines in races. He added streamlining and with the engine sleeved down to 125cc, set several world records at Brooklands. The machine attracted a lot of attention and here it is on display at the 1936 Olympia show with a pretty young visitor adding to the attraction. 
Below, Harry Nash setting off on a run. Bottom, an unmodified model 23.
