Dot Motorcycles for 1914


Mr. Harry Reed, of Manchester, maker of the Dot motor cycle, has long been known for his powerful machines. Of interest, therefore, is the new Dot lightweight machine, which is fitted with a 2½ h.p. J. A. P. engine 70 X 76 mm. bore and stroke (292 c.c).

A Dixie magneto is mounted on a platform behind the cylinder; in rear of this again is an Amac carburetter. The transmission is by a chain to the Albion two-speed gear situated in the countershaft, and thence by belt over a large pulley to the rear wheel. Saxon forks and a Brooks saddle combine to make the machine comfortable. The front mudguard is provided with side flaps. Hutchinson tyres are standard, and the general lines of the machine are neat and effective.
