HE motorcycles were produced around 1935 by George Hanstock who used the initials of his firm, Hanstock Engineering, of Maltby, near Rotherham in Yorkshire.
He built frames to carry a range of Villiers two-stroke engines. The machines were not listed in major catalogues so most must have been sold locally. At least two went to Maltby residents.
The firm also built automobile workshop jacks.
There appears to be a strong association with the Carlton firm of Nottinghamshire.
