This little poppet is a 50cc, 4 speeder, which can get up to just over 40mph on the flat. But if there is a head wind or on hills, she rapidly struggles. She went round the Isle of Man TT course in 1 hour 17 minutes (not bad for 50cc), but needed first gear briefly when starting the mountain climb.

250cc single, beloved by many pre-65 enthusiasts. Looks a picture, but a bit uncomfortable for longer road rides, as she’s designed for mainly standing up

This was originally a 500cc, now bored to 600cc. It’s been made less life-threatening by having the throttle changed to the usual, right-hand side, unlike it’s original spec. Foot clutch, 3 speed. Shame about the colour!

The Douggie has done several Pioneer Runs since being with us. It’s a 350cc, 2 and 3/4 HP, two speed, clutchless, push start (but not uphill), decent ride, for a bike that’s 107 years old, bless her.
