Pouncy were motorcycles produced firstly in Dorchester, Dorset, and then in Hampshire, between 1931 and 1936.
1931 The first model appeared. Called the Cob, it was powered by a 346cc Villiers engine and was typical of the era.
1932 That model was joined by a competition version and a 148cc model.
1933 The Cob was not produced that year, but a 249cc model, listed as the Pal, appeared. During the year the firm made its move to Hampshire.
1935 The range reduced to a new version of the Pal. This had a duplex frame, pivoted-fork rear suspension and a Villiers engine.
1936 The Pal ran on for just that year before production stopped.
