Slap a Sloper

Whilst searching for the M21 outfit information I happened upon this item needing much TLC. It’s the earlier M33 ‘sloper’; the early thirties model with distinctive engine angle. About 6 hp thumping from the single pint sized jug just enough low end to haul around a chair. Suitable for the country lanes of England at the time for sure!

Here’s a happy owner on their BSA enjoying the delights of a countryside jaunt.

n.b. “slapping slopers” is a climbing move practised in the rounded but rough gritstone edges of the Peak District. Here’s a climber craggin’ on a Stanage Edge classic: Congo Corner HVS 5b stretching out on a long reach sloper. “Slap it youth!”
