Default Rover Imperial Motorcycle Engine from Raw Casting to Machining & Assembly.

Just found this Kool video showing old footage of the casting, machining, and assembling of the Rover Imperial Motorcycle engines, advertised at the time as being the only motorcycle with CAST Cylinders.

Shows it step by step from the foundry to final assembly and testing.



Enjoy !

Reminds me of the song Killed myself when I was young.
