Report from the 1903 Stanley Show

Messrs. Geo. Lyons and Company will exhibit at the Stanley several motor-bicycles fitted with 3.25 h.p. motors. They have their patent flexible side-carriage attached to these machines. The attachment of these cars is effected by the screwing up of two bolts only, and the makers claim it can be attached and detached under two minutes. A special shape basket will be provided to carry petrol and other supplies.
