Broler was a motorcycle produced from 1920 to 1922.
The company of Brooks, Tasler and Cox was based in Narborough, Leicestershire.
Their slogan was: 'You will never tire a Broler'.
At the beginning of the 1920s they promoted a 349cc two-stroke engine,
which formed the basis of their short-lived motorcycle. The engine was
a three-port type but, for ease of running, it featured ball-and-roller
The firm changed its name to Broler Motors and sold the engine
to other companies that assembled machines, including Campion, MPH, TEJ and Vasco. This kept them afloat for a while, until business dried up.

N.B. A post from a Narborough resident suggests that the works may have actually been in the neighboring village of Littlethorpe. This has been confirmed - see below.
