McKechnie Motors

McKechnie Motors of Coventry.

McKechnie was a motorcycle produced in 1922.

This machine had a novel design, but failed to have any impact on the market. It had an unusual spring frame in which engine, gearbox, tank, foot-boards and saddle, etc., were all suspended as a unit by means of a leaf spring. The assembly lay between straight duplex tubes connecting steering head to rear-wheel spindle, while a Montgomery leaf-spring fork controlled the steering. It was powered by a 688cc sv Coventry-Victor flat-twin engine, with a four-speed Jardine gearbox and all-chain transmission.
