A plated machine reposing on a mirror forms a dazzling centre of attraction here. All the models shown have open frames and seats, and are provided with large size footboards which should assist greatly in shielding off dirt and dust. Even the scooter has been developed in divers ways in accordance with modern dictates. For instance, one model has plated disc wheel covers, whilst another specimen, which will appeal to ladies, is provided with a wicker basket on the handle-bars; another has a case neatly mounted on the three-ply wood footboards, whilst a further type is intended for express parcels delivery. The scooter sidecar alone remains as a possibility of the future!
With a single-cylinder air-cooled engine disposed horizontally, and the petrol and oil tank mounted over it, the whole of the mechanism is actually astern of the rider. A guard is provided as protection for the roller chain - adjustable for tension - which transmits the drive from a sprocket on the camshaft to the rear wheel.
