Silver

Silver were motorcycles produced by Thomas Silver from 1907 to 1909.

Tom Silver had previously been connected with the Quadrant Cycle Co and left that firm in 1907 to build identical machines that he advertised as 'An old friend under a new name'. This ran on until 1909.

THE THOMAS SILVER MOTOR BICYCLE.

THE first illustration of the new Thomas Silver motor bicycle is given herewith. This model has been designed with a view of obtaining great flexibility. The engine has large flywheels and valves, and the frame is built low and fitted with spring forks of improved pattern. Two powerful brakes are provided, while entirely separate tanks are fitted for petrol and oil. The magneto machine is chain-driven, being bolted to a platform behind the cylinder.

A feature of the design is that the engine, magneto machine, and carburetter, can be separately removed from the frame without disturbing any other parts. This machine is the result of years of practical experience, and no pains have been spared to meet the wants of motor cycle riders.
