The 1920s were an amazing decade in motorcycle development. New companies and motorcycle designs began springing up throughout the country - from underpowered three wheelers to the sports motorcycle, the 1920s had them all! This book describes the lesser known manufacturers and their motorcycles providing a wealth of information on makes from Abbotsford to Wiseman and Alecto to Verus and Zenith, not forgetting the many transient but more famous marques such as ABC, Radco and Raleigh for example. Each model and make is described in some detail and accompanied by period illustrations from advertisements and show catalogues to be sure of authenticity. Together with this wealth of information on some 80 or more little known makes, there are also some fascinating and helpful insights into the many facets of motorcycling during the is period - the roads and garages, suspension, clothing and even the wireless! Absolutely invaluable to restorers and historians of early British motorcycles.
