Southern Cross

Southern Cross was a motorcycle produced in Manchester, by Chas Shaw.

A tricycle was offered that had a single front wheel with fine wicker seat between the rear ones. The notable feature of this was the fact that it could be reversed so that the passenger faced the rear. It had braced forks, spray carburettor for the single-cylinder engine and all-chain drive via a countershaft with free-engine position.
