Cyril Pullin

Cyril George Pullin (1893-1965) was a British, inventor, engineer and motorcycle racer born in Hammersmith.

In 1914 Pullin won the Isle of Man TT race. In 1920 he produced the Pullin-Groom, and later in the 1920's he developed the Ascot car and lodged various helicopter engine patents.

In 1925 he developed the Powerwheel, a single cylinder rotary engine in the hub of a motorcycle wheel, including clutch and drum brakes. His sister was married to Stephen Leslie Bailey, a then prominent engineer at Douglas Motors, and many of his patents were filed under the name of that company.
