Paul Dunstall retired from racing having been more than competitive on his Dommie 99, indeed having won his first ever home race at Brands Hatch facing Manx Norton's with far more of a race pedigree. After his race career, Dunstall started to concentrate on tuning and fabrication work and, in 1961, Dunstall became an authorised Norton agent. In 1962, Dunstall purchased the Domiracer stock making complete bikes as well as aftermarket parts. Models given the full Dunstall treatment included Dominator Model 88, 99, 77 and 650SS. Very soon competitors of the Dunstall Dommies complained about them having an unfair advantage so, in 1967, Dunstall became an authorised manufacturer, homologated by the Auto-Cycle Union for entry into the Isle of Man TT. In 1967 Dunstall motorcycles notched the world one hour record at Monza averaging 126.7mph for the 60 minutes with high speed records of over 140mph.
Not only is this machine immaculately restored, beautiful to look at and stunningly proportioned but there is a small detail that makes this motorcycle truly unique. If you look through the accompanying green log book, you will notice that it was first registered to Eltham Motorcycles & Scooters. This happens to be the earliest known trading address for Paul Dunstall. There is also one other letter that accompanies the paperwork and that is from John Woodgate who runs the Dunstall register confirming that, to his knowledge, this is still the earliest Dunstall on record. Also included is a road-test report of the Dunstall Dominator reprinted from 'Motor Cycle' dated 20th May 1965 presented with the complements of Paul Dunstall Motor Cycles and, again, giving the address in Feltham. Of all Dunstalls, this must be the finest available.
