1919 - 1920

The Tankette was an unusual cyclecar powered by a 2 3/4 hp single-cylinder 2-stroke Union engine driving a 2-speed Burman gearbox, with chain final drive to the twin rear wheels which were mounted so close together as to give the impression of a single wheel.  The frame consisted of flat steel strips on either side of ash members, while the front axle consisted of concentric steel tubes which enabled the wheels to be pushed inwards, allowing the car to pass through a 3ft doorway.
