Manufactured by McCrae & Pascoe, 242 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne
The second machine is a J.A.P.-engined model known as the Pasco, and is manufactured by Messrs. McCrae and Pasco, 242, Elizabeth Street, Melbourne, Victoria.
The frame, it will be observed, has a curved top tube, and possesses graceful lines, while Druid forks are fitted. The mudguards are wide and have deep valances. The lubrication is by a force feed pump combined with a drip feed attached to the lubricating oil tank fitted to the rear, behind the saddle tube, while the transmission is chain-cum-belt through a Sturmey-Archer gear.
Several patents have been incorporated in the Pasco, namely, a patent toolcase underneath the carrier, and a locking device consisting of two lugs brazed to the stand and joined to the stays so that a padlock can be passed through without there being any necessity to use a chain.
The frame is enamelled in black, and the tank black with gold lines, while the wheels are white with gold lines.

Leon Mitchel writes, "The illustration above was published in The Motor Cycle in July 1920, and is reproduced from a scrapbook in the VVMCCSA library. The machine is essentially the A.G. Healing 'kit' common to many local manufacturers (my Blue Bird is an example), with a 6 HP (770 cc) JAP motor and Sturmey Archer CS gearbox."

An article on the Melbourne Motor Show of 1924 says that McCrae & Pascoe displayed 39 solo models, but makes no mention of the Pasco. See McCrae & Pascoe.
