History of Wolf motorcycles...

Hi, While sorting through my late father inlaws motorcycle parts I came across what appears to be an very early Wolf motorbike petrol tank. It has the Wolf emblem still on the tank. I can not find any similar tanks or information in regard to this and hope you may assist.

Wolf Wolf 500
Read many years ago: Wolf company apparently ended as part of the UK Co-op organization/movement, or maybe they just sold the finished product. Allegedly, a 500 model got a very good road-test report in a 1939 'Motorcycle' or 'Motorcycling' magazine! I'd guess Wolf was one of dozens of small firms assembling bikes from bought-in components. Most were swallowed by WWII weapons production boom. A Cambodian company seems unlikely, as it was then under French control. Maybe another outfit using a common name? But who knows?

Wolf Vixen
Hello, I have just acquired what I have identified as a 1937 Wolf Vixen.  It uses a 148cc Villiers twin port engine with a 3 speed hand change Burman gearbox. Except for the speedo and speedo drive it is 100% complete.  It has been in dry storage for over 40 years and belonged to my friends grandfather.

Does anyone know much about these bikes and where I can find parts for the engine and gearbox? The chassis parts are not an issue, they are all in good nick, just need some cleaning.

Wolf 1928/30
This is a Wolf I own. I was sold it as a 1928 however I think now that it may have parts off a number of similar vintage Wolfs. The frame is pre 1930 as it is not a loop frame and has a rear axle pivoting stand. There seems to be no information on machines made just prior to their closure in 1928/9. It seems to have been reengined with a Villiers 2E 196cc. Any info would be appreciated.

Wolf motorcycles
Hi I have a motorcycle that i have been told could be a Wolf, it is fitted with a Villiers 9d engine and has the twin exhausts comming out of the back of cylinder.
Engine No AAA7896. No on frame 198698. can you help please.
Thanks john.

    Your machine is very similar to the Wolf Unit of 1937, but differs slightly in the rear subframe mounting. Ed. The machine turned out to be an Excelsior J10 of 1935, very similar to the Wolf Unit.
