Charlie Drake

Cap-'em was a motorcycle produced between 1904 and 1905 by Charlie Drake of Bracken Road East, Brighouse, West Yorkshire.

The name came from saying that he would "Cap 'em", or build a better machine than anyone else. This Edwardian motorcycle had a Kerry engine and one of the first P and M two-speed gears.
