A Brief History of the Marque
Made in England from 1919 to 1924, the company introduced chain-driven
models in 1923.
Manufactured by Cashmore Bros of Balham, London.
There is a short article in The Motor Cycle dated July 31st 1919 page 112. The image of the page has a handwritten date appears to be 1915, cost £83. On back is report of a review and half page of special features.
Engine is an Alecto two-stroke twin-port, 76x76mm B/S.
Another article from 1922 states that production is about to recommence and that three 350cc models will be available.
