Phoenix Scooters UK


Phoenix scooters were produced from 1956 to 1964 by Ernie Barrett in Tottenham, London.

  • 1956 The first machine was seen and was typical of its type, but rather weighty. It had the Villiers 30C 147cc engine.

    1958 The rear body was improved and changed to glass-fibre moulding. Engines of 148cc, 197cc and 249cc were added to the range. Models were available in both standard and De Luxe versions.

    1960 Further Villiers engines of 174cc and 324cc were added.

    1963 A model fitted with the 99cc 6F engine appeared but the market was in decline.

    1964 Production stopped.
