Fans of long-defunct motorcycle-marque “Cotton” are looking for a record-breaking bike first built 75 years ago.

The 1935, 250cc Cotton JAP apparently broke 12 world records in October of that year. Originally owned and ridden by Charles Mortimer and Eric Fernihough, its whereabouts have since become a mystery.

It was known to have been raced at Donington in 1939, then owned by TT rider Norman Webb, who passed away in the 1990s.

Brooklands museum are also reported to be interested in the classic bike, a similar [though not identical] version of which is pictured.
