A Brief History of the Marque
Coventry-Victor engines were fitted to some Socovel machines.
A report on the Motor Cycle Show of November 1924 reads, in part:
"Three examples of this well-known make of motor cycle are on view on this stand. There is the 3 1/2 h.p. O.H.V. flat twin, which, perhaps, will be the most interesting, as it is an entirely new model. It is shown as a sporting solo machine and stripped for fast solo work and racing. The super-six is also shown in four different forms ; as a solo fully stripped for sports work, and as regards the others, two are equipped with super-sports sidecars.
The other model is the super touring model, and this is shown as a solo machine with dynamo lighting equipment, and as a colonial model with 28 in. by 3 in. extra heavy wheels, greater ground clearance, heavier forks and frame, together with touring sidecar, suitable for the heaviest conditions of motor cycling.
