Bradbury and Co., Ltd., Oldham.

The Bradbury twin (750 c.c.) sports model has quite recently broken records at Brooklands, and this machine deservedly holds pride of place on their stand at Olympia, for its general lines are extremely attractive, and it at once commands the attention of those who are seeking a high-powered mount which shall not at the same time be excessively heavy. It is difficult to say exactly how the makers have achieved comparative lightness with this model, but a glance followed by a brief test with the hand suffices to show that they have succeeded, in that without sacrificing solidity.

IVY. (64.)

S. A. NEWMAN, Ltd., Aston Cross, Birmingham.

New Four-stroke Model.

2¾ H.P. Model.

75x79 mm. (349 c.c): single-cyl. four-stroke; side valves; drip feed lubrication: Amac carb. : chain-driven mag.; 3-sp. gear; clutch and kick-starter; chain drive; 26x2¼in. tyres. Price: Solo, £70; with Sidecar, £92.

The principal feature of the Ivy exhibit is the new side-valve engined four-stroke, which makes its appearance for the first time. This does not differ radically from the two-stroke-engined models, which are so well-known, and which are shown on the stand in various models. It is a quite clean-looking little machine, arranged in an entirely conventional manner, enamelled the khaki colour which is distinctive of the Ivy machines, and notable for a double down tube from the steering head to the crank case.
