Gear Boxes now Optional on Both Models.

VERY little alteration will be made to the popular little 211 c.c. Levis in the near future. All essentials remain unchanged, but a few minor details have been cleaned up. A very smart little machine will, however, be staged at Olympia embodying the 247 c.c. engine. Having a bore and stroke of 67x70 mm., this engine is the T.T. power unit modified for touring purposes. It has plain bearings throughout, and all the well-known Levis features are retained.

It will be fitted in a new frame with sloping top tube, the tank being carried on substantial platforms brazed to the duplex detachable lower rails; 24 x 2¼ in. tyres are fitted.

A feature of this new type will be that the single-geared model may be converted to a two-speed machine without structural alteration. The sloping tank contains 1¾ gallon of fuel, and just over halt a gallon of oil. Malleable lugs have been discarded wherever possible in favour of steel stampings. The price of the 247 c.c. machine with single gear is £56, while that of the 211 c.c. machine is £48. In each case £10 is charged for a two-speed gear box with chain and belt drive and clutch; while a kick-starter may be added if desired for a further charge of £2.
