Here's the wright up in Tragatsch.

"England 1927 - 30

Designed by F. A. Baker who was once with Cleveland in the USA and who afterwards produced Precision proprietary engines in England. After leaving Beardmore-Precision he created Villiers-engined two strokes of 147cc, 173cc, 198cc and 246cc with modern and sturdy frames. In 1930 he sold out to James."

Cheers
Jim

No sorry I have never heard of a verified one, it, like so many of those small manufacturers in the teens and twenties would have made the frame only and bought in all the rest of the parts. Do you have a lead on one?

Cheers

I'd recommend placing a question on the Classic Motorcycle Forum. There are a few members on there that really know their stuff, particularly UK bikes. I'd be surprised if you didn't get any help from there.

I would also try contacting the National Car Museum in Birdwood S.A. They have a very extensive motor bike collection and it would not surprise me that they have one. On a very recent visit they had a number of small bikes running Villiers engines.

Cheers
