    Hi Nick, the liner is marked "BMB" for "Briggs Motor Bodies" and is British.

    I would be concerned about the painted interior though.

    Cheers, Ade.

    thanks Ade

    the interior does look fresh compared to the rest of it also is that chin strap ok ????

    i think the liner may have been taken out as the screw on top looks to have been messed with ????

    The liner may well have been out. Earlier screws were different.

    The chinstrap is the later simplified MKIII. Early ones were sprung loaded.

    Cheers, Ade.
