1929 Newmount 200cc


1929 Newmount 200cc

The name was British but in truth the Newmouth was an imported German Zundapp. The smaller model (seen here) employed Zundapp's own two-stroke engine but there was also a 499cc Newmount which, a little more patriotically, employed a British-built Rudge engine in a German-made frame. Interestingly, the man behind the Coventry-based importing firm was J K Starley Jnr, formerly of the Rover Company. Steering head and frame backbone are a one-piece steel forging.
