Moonbeam was a motorcycle produced in 1920, and promoted by the M. R. P. Trading Co of Pall Mall, London. This short-lived make was a lightweight of 100lb. It had a roller-bearing 269cc Villiers two-stroke engine, direct-belt drive or optional two-speed chain and belt transmission. Its mid-season appearance was very brief. One source indicates it existed until 1921, but there appears to be no mention of it in the motorcycle press for that year. Source: Graces Guide
