Autoglider Motorcycles

Autoglider Scooters

A Brief History of the Marque

Made in England by Townsend and Co (Birmingham?) from 1919 to 1922, the Autoglider was part of the first scooter boom. It had a 292cc Villiers or 269cc Union two stroke mounted above the front wheel.

The platform was on small disc wheels and the handlebars were carried by a long twin-tube extension, with the cylindrical fuel tank fitted between them. Later models had a seat and lower handlebars with the fuel tank set between them.
