F. AND H. Melen, Ltd., Sherlock Street, Birmingham.
A unique little business three-wheeler is shown on the Melen stand, which otherwise is for the most part devoted to bicycles. It is fitted with a 297 c.c. two-stroke engine, three-speed gear, and chain transmission. Two brakes act on a single rear drum; one is an external contracting band and the other is a shoe, pulled on to the inner periphery by the hand lever. From experience on the road it has been found to be a particularly stable little vehicle, efficiently sprung, economical, and very suitable for the type of driver who is likely to handle it. The accommodation, too, is good, the carrying capacity being from 1½ to 2 cwt.
