Other one is the 498 " 100 " with a JAP lump .. This bike holds a particular record .. Sherbert dip to the first one to get it .. 

Bill Lacey, the man who later prepared Mike Hailwood's legendary Manx Norton in the 50s, set a number of 500cc records on the bike, including being the first man to cover 100 miles in an hour on a British track, and culminating with a world record average speed of 105.9mph over a 60 minute run in 1929.  Six replicas were produced for public sale, and each one came with a certificate guaranteeing that Lacey had personally lapped Brooklands at 100mph on that bike.  It's thought that only two survive.  Imagine finding one, with the certificate still intact.
