Dunkley motorcycles were produced from 1914 to 1916, in Jamaica
1914 The range consisted of models fitted with Precision
2hp, 3.5hp and 4.25hp single engines, or 4hp and 6hp V-twins. The smallest
had horizontal ohv, two-speed gear, belt final-drive and Druid
forks. It was advertised for 27 guineas, ready for the road, and came complete
with lamp, generator, horn, tools, two tool bags and a pump. Also listed
was a similar model with a 349cc two-stroke engine with drip-feed lubrication.
1915 The models continued and the 349cc two-stroke now had three speeds.
1916 All models were fitted with JAP
1924 There is mention of a single speed 750 V-twin Pramotor, but no source has been found to verify this.
It was not a good time to enter the motorcycle market with a range of models
and it was very short lived.
1950s Dunkley Whippet scooters were available for a year or two, including
There was also a Dunkley Sidecar from Dunkley's Alvechurch in 1911.

vehicle identification Dunkley / Mercury Whippet
I have purchaced a Dunkley / Mercury Whippet which was a barn find to restore and I am attempting to source the bikes original details (if possible) to aid re-registering it. The number plate is :- TYG 700 (or could be TYC 700). Does any one know where this info could be found as the company went into liquidation in the late 1950's/60's? Derby English
