Power Pak

Power-Pak clip-on bicycle engines were produced by Sinclair Goddard of 162 Queensway, Bayswater W.2., between 1950 and 1956.

This clip-on unit was first used to power a standard bicycle and was a 49cc two-stroke that hung over the rear wheel, which it drove by friction roller. It had a flywheel magneto, petroil lubrication and the fuel tank fitted over the crankcase.

In 1956 the company tried to create a moped by adapting the engine to fit under the bottom bracket of a special frame. It enjoyed no success.

Itom Tourist cyclemotor engines were fitted to some of their products.
