Overview

1921 - 1922

This was probably the lightest, simplest and cheapest car to be offered to postwar British motorists.  A 3-wheeler with single front wheel and virtually no body, certainly no weather protection, it had an ash frame whose flexibility rendered any kind of springing unnecessary, or so the makers claimed.  The engine was an air-cooled 2-stroke flat-twin of 165cc, driving the offside rear wheel by chain via a 2-speed friction transmission.  The top speed was 30mph and the price was £60.

The company also made a motorcycle with the same engine, and this sold for only £28.10s (£28.50).  In 1923 the motorcycles' address was given as the Eynsford Engineering Co., of Eynsford, Kent, but it is not known if cars were made there as well.
