Elswick Cycles Mfg. Co., Barton-on-Humber.
1919 Olympia Show
The Motor Cycle, November 27th 1919
There were plans to resume production after the end of the Great War, but these did not come to fruition. The Olympia Show report above is believed to refer to remaining stock being sold off. Elswick concentrated on making bicycles.
Sadly, production costs proved too high and it did not enter production. Six prototypes were constructed, of which two remain.
