Below are two pictures of my Bartram. It is a Bartram engine made here in Australia by Kelly & Lewis. This is my 30th Birthday engine as it was partially financed by my parents as for my 30th Birthday on the 10th Feb. 2000.

It is a 5hp Type A-K Bartram. The engine number is missing off the plate so I supplied what numbers I could find to Clarke Mayze who has the Kelly & Lewis records. His search yielded the following; the number on the head 118 (which seems to usually be the engine number) relates to an engine tested on 20-11-1915; the number on the carby 152 relates to and engine tested on 17-11-1916 and fitted with a Thomson Bennett magneto;and the Dixie magneto no. 96431 relates to Bartram no. 1227 which was tested on 13-6-1919.

I finally ran it for the first time on Sunday March 5th 2000.
