Hazlewood, Ltd., West Orchard, Coventry. A reputation for sturdy construction has been a Hazlewood characteristic for some years past, and the new 8 h.p. machine will do nothing to detract from: this. A newcomer to the ranks of the 8 h.p. sidecar outfits is always a matter of interest, and the latest Hazlewood is a fine example of British construction.

The 8 h.p. J.A.P. engine which provides the power is coupled to a three-speed countershaft gear of the company's own construction, the multiple-plate dry clutch being operated by a pedal. A cast aluminium cover protects the primary chain, and the top run of the rear chain is covered by a well valanced guard. Outstanding features of the machine are the straight top tube concealed by a neat saddle tank, a large diameter drum brake on the rear wheel, a large cast aluminium silencer, and a simple but effective form of auxiliary saddle suspension. Mudguarding is well carried out, and the Druid type forks are of the latest pattern, including the compensated spring action. This machine is attached to a handsome Canoelet sidecar finished in grey to match the tank, and the Hazlewood speciality of front lug reinforcement is, of course, included. The same machine may be obtained with final belt drive.

A 6 h.p. model is shown also fitted with a J. A. P. engine; it is similar to the machine described above, but has a dropped top tube and chain and belt drive. The price, comp1ete with a rather lighter sidecar, is £186. The 6 h.p. machine is also shown as a solo mount with handle-bar controlled clutch and f footrests instead of foot-boards; price £160. A gear box is shown in section, from which the spring tooth construction of the kick-starter is clearly visible.
