1924 Beardmore Precision Model C 598cc

The Beardmore Precision embodied some original ideas. The fuel tank is an integral part of the frame structure. In pre-war days F E Baker Ltd has specialised in supplying proprietary engines to other motorcycle manufacturers but in 1919 Baker obtained substantial backing from shipbuilders William Beardmore. After financial collapse in 1925, the factory was taken over by its present occupants. Triplex Safety Glass and Frank Baker started again, making small Villiers-engined Baker two-strokes.
