LEVIS. (68.)

BUTTERFIELDS, Ltd., Stechford, Birmingham.

Pioneer Two-strokes.

2¼ H.P. MODEL.

62x70 mm. (311 c.c); single cyl. two-stroke; drip-feed lubrication; B. and B. carb.; chain-driven mag.; 2-sp. gear; clutch and kick-starter; chain and belt drive; 24x2¼in. tyres. Price £49.

An early machine to make a name on the market as a two-stroke lightweight, the Levis is still represented by one model having the original lines and simplicity. This is shown with a single gear belt drive and everything reduced to its simplest possible expression. The remaining models have the 211 c.c. engine and the 247 c.c. engine, but the design of all is on much the same lines, the differences being that the 247 c.c. unit has a three-speed gear of chain drive, and both expanding brakes act on the rear wheel. Chain and belt is used for two of the 211 cc. machines, the chain from the engine being neatly covered in by a metal case.

Naturally, the Levis wins in the Lightweight T.T. and the French and Belgian Grand Prix Races have earned a more than ordinary amount of interest for the marketed representatives of the successful machine.
