Ivy Motorcycles for 1923

Motorcycles at the 1922 Olympia Show

The 1922 Olympia Show.

IVY. (64.)

S. A. NEWMAN, Ltd., Aston Cross, Birmingham.

New Four-stroke Model.

2¾ H.P. Model.

75x79 mm. (349 c.c): single-cyl. four-stroke; side valves; drip feed lubrication: Amac carb. : chain-driven mag.; 3-sp. gear; clutch and kick-starter; chain drive; 26x2¼in. tyres. Price: Solo, £70; with Sidecar, £92.

The principal feature of the Ivy exhibit is the new side-valve engined four-stroke, which makes its appearance for the first time. This does not differ radically from the two-stroke-engined models, which are so well-known, and which are shown on the stand in various models. It is a quite clean-looking little machine, arranged in an entirely conventional manner, enamelled the khaki colour which is distinctive of the Ivy machines, and notable for a double down tube from the steering head to the crank case.

Designed in the first place as a comfortable touring machine, it has deep mudguards and extra leg guards for riding in bad weather.

3 H.P. Model.

75x79 mm. (349 c.c); single-cyl. two-stroke: drip feed lubrication; Amac carb.; chain-driven mag.; 3-sp. gear; clutch and kick-starter; chain drive; 26x 2 l/4in. tyres. Price : Solo, £65.

The two-strokes have been slightly modified in detail, and are shown mainly as solo mounts, one having the dropped frame suitable for a lady's use, but all of similar design. To one a collapsible sidecar is fitted.

The only real alteration to the smaller (250 c.c.) Ivy lies in a change of plug position, i.e. to the rear of the cylinder head.
