SGS

SGS were the initials of the Syd Gleave Special, a motorcycle produced in Macclesfield, Cheshire from 1927 to 1931.

  • 1927 A range of Specials was produced using Villiers and JAP engines.
  • 1930 By now there were 196cc and 247cc two-strokes, plus 245cc and 346cc four-strokes. The machines were typical of the era, but attactive to look at. To begin with the frames were made in Macclesfield, but were later produced by Diamond of Wolverhampton.
  • 1931 Production stopped during the year as the Depression years meant that times were hard.
