Cedos Motors, Northampton.

Several interesting features are noticeable on the attractive little Cedos two-stroke. Its motive power is one of the few two-stroke engines which possess a detachable head, and it is interesting to note that it is fed with mixture by a carburetter of the firm's own manufacture. The machine has attractive lines, wide handle-bars, giving excellent control, and internal-expanding brakes fore and aft. Not only are comfortable fool-boards provided for the driver, but there is an undershield, an extension which protects the underside of the engine.

Two variations of this model are the slightly cheaper type with two-speed gear and belt and chain drive (£48), and the ladies' machine, which, of course, naturally has a special open frame and 24in. wheels so as to give a lower riding position. The ladies' model is also in equivalent forms at £59 and £50 respectively.
