The Bond manufacturing company passed to Ellis of Leeds, and became
the Bond Aircraft and Engineering Co, or BAC.
1951 A small but conventionally designed machine, called the Lilliput,
reached the market. It was powered by either a 99cc Villiers1F
engine with a two-speed gearbox, or a 125cc JAP
two-stroke with three speeds.
1952 Unreliable supplies of the JAP engine meant that only the smaller
Villiers model was listed. This was joined by the Gazellescooter
with small wheels and a platform behind a front shield. It had a steel-barred
grill around its 122cc Villiers10D engine.
1953 Only the Gazelle was listed with a choice of 1F or 10D
engine. The model was taken over by Projects and Developments of Blackburn,
but the name soon disappeared.
