The 1922 Olympia Show.
CALTHORPE. (Stand 104.)
Two Stroke Models.
2½ H.P. MODEL.
The Calthorpe Motor Cycle Co., Barn Street, Birmingham.
Several details are worthy of attention on the smallest Calthorpe. Six-inch mudguards are fitted, and the protection for the rider is really remarkable for such a small and light machine.
An aluminium silencer of good dimensions is disposed inconspicuously beneath the engine, and the exhaust is carried well away to the back. The rear wheel brake, heel-applied, is remarkably simple and effective in its arrangement, there being no rods or superfluous connection whatever.
A direct belt-driven model which is marketed at the popular price of £30 is also shown.
3 H.P. Model.
There is also a small light sidecar outfit at a very attractive price. The two-stroke engine is of 349 c.c, and the example shown upon the stand is fitted with the M-L Maglita lighting set, the price with this addition being £87 10s.
