Trobike was a motorcycle produced from 1960 to 1965, by the Trojan works in Croydon, Surrey.
This was a mini-bike sold in kit form - thus avoiding purchase tax. Although it could be used for short trips on the road, the intended usage was in factories, on airfields, at race mettings, on large estates or any other expansive private area.
It had a 94cc Clinton two-stroke engine with an automatic 'Twist and Go" centrifugal clutch to take the drive to the rear wheel. This was mounted in a simple frame without suspension, other than fat 5-inch tyres. It did around 30mph and 90-odd miles to the gallon.
This type of machine was fairly popular in the USA - less well-liked in the UK, it had but a short life. The company made approximately 550 of these machines.
