Smith Brothers

CCR-JAP was a motorcycle produced in 1912, by Smith Brothers of Nottingham.

This machine was a sidecar outfit with a 6hp JAP V-twin engine. It had a three-speed Chater-Lea gearbox, engine clutch, chain transmission and Druid forks. The sidecar was attached at five points and the body was well-sprung with a substantial windscreen and folding roof, and the sidecar wheel was located well to the rear. A second acetylene lamp was affixed to the body just forward of the passenger door. This model appears to have had chain drive. Smith Brothers also made a solo CCR with a 4½ hp twin that had belt drive and, as did the combination model, an Armstrong three-speed hub gear.
