NOVEMBER 24th, 1921. p654


The sporting Coventry Eagle has the honour of being one of the earliest lightweights to be turned out as a luxury mount pure and simple. It will be remembered that this model is fitted with a 2½ h.p. o.h.v. J.A.P. engine with several detail refinements and a distinctive design of ribbed exhaust manifold. A handsome saddle tank and clean frame and mudguard lines add to the uncommonly pleasing general appearance of the machine, which, incidentally, is supplied fully equipped down to aluminium number plates. For next year the saddle tank, which made its first appearance on the lightweight, will be fitted to all the Coventry Eagle models.

The others are : A 2½ h.p. two-stroke, a 293 c.c. J.A.P., a 350 c.c. J. A. P. (also offered as a light-weight sidecar outfit), a 4 h.p. (550 c.c.) J.A.P., and a 5-6 h.p. twin J.A.P. sidecar outfit.

The most interesting exhibit on this stand is undoubtedly the flying 8, which has just created a whole sheaf of records. But it will be observed many improvements and alterations have been made since we last saw it at Olympia. Amongst these may be mentioned the incorporation of a torque tube from head to engine and from rear fork ends to engine. The frame is looped right round the engine and 8 in. internal expanding brakes are fitted to both wheels, with interchangeable parts. Both hubs have taper roller bearings and the saddle fitted is a Terry, designed to give an extremely low riding position.

A steering damper is fitted as part of the standard equipment, as well as Webb forks incorporating shock absorber. The price of this model complete with 700 mm. by 80 mm. Dunlop cord tyres is ... A Lucas Madgyno lighting set is fitted as an extra, and the machine can be had equipped with an 8-30 h.p. four-cam engine. Other models shown range from the two-stroke upwards, and amongst these attention should be directed to the J.A.P. engined 300 c.c. machine.
