Lily Motorcycle (British)
Lily 3.5hp
Attached (assuming it works) some shots of a surviving Lily (aka Marshall-Lily). The engine is a rare 3.5 hp TDC, the gear a Brampton variable pulley.
It's not mine, by the way.

A little bit about my self, I come from 5 generations of shop owners in Clay Cross, Derbyshire. During the early 1900s my Gt Gt Grandad Richard Marshall set up building motorcycles using T.D.Cross engines and calling them LILY after his mother. I am attempting to join this forum in the vain attempt of tracing one of these machines.

Please find attached a newspaper/magazine article about the machine. 
I hope to hear from you soon.
