A Brief History of the Marque

The Aberdale firm of London between 1947 & 1949, this Villiers Junior powered 98cc autocycle was typical of lightweights built during the immediate postwar era. The 98cc Villiers engine hung from the frame and it had petroil lubrication, direct lighting and blade girder forks. A carrier was positioned over the rear wheel, and side panels concealed the engine. It had basic controls (brake, clutch, throttle, gearchange), a bulb horn, drum brakes and a speedometer.

The motorcycles were manufactured in the Bown factory in Tonypandy in Wales. In 1949 they were re-badged and marketed under the Bown label.
