Wooler Model B 344cc 1921


The Sammy Miller Museum is an historically important collection of road and competition motorcycles which focuses on the golden age of the sport in the 1950s and 60s. The collection includes some of the most outstanding machines ever raced, and almost all are in running order. Many have been lovingly restored, and some have been left with their original patina.

1921 Wooler Semi TT Model B

Founded in 1911 by John Wooler, the company made a number of eccentric motorcycle designs over the years. This Model B has plunger suspension both front and rear as well as Wooler's trademark fuel tank that extended in front of the steering head. The 344cc horizontally-opposed twin cylinder (mounted fore-aft) used an inlet over exhaust valve design that was highly economical - 311mpg was observed on test.
