Royal Ruby Cycle Co., Manchester.
1929 The four-strokes were discontinued and so, by the end of the decade, only two-strokes were in production.
1930 Only the 247cc and the 343cc models continued.
1931 They were down to just one model - the 346cc Red Shadow.
1932 That single model was joined by Club and Standard versions of the same.
1933 They were joined by three versions of 249cc, one with water cooling. It was the final year.
