Glancing at Lewis’s photos, and remembering an earlier post in this thread, I thought it impossible that this little machine could possibly weigh as much as 330 lbs. I had handled one of these rare and not particularly desirable models when we offered it at a Bonhams sale a few years ago, and it was definitely a lightweight. The 1930 catalogue shows the weight as 230 lbs, while “The MotorCycle” road test of 18th July 1929 quotes “225 – 228 lbs according to equipment”. Like Lewis, I would prefer any model of the iconic two speeder to this. It is not surprising that it wasn’t a success.
Best wishes to all
