    1974 Planeta Sport 350 1974 Planeta Sport 350 We believe this is one of the oldest continuously manufactured motorcycle in Russia and dates from 1927. For some time during the post WW 2 era, Russia was the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles. However due to the extent of the cold war and the isolation of the USSR, few Russian machines are to be found in the western world

    1929 Praga DOHC, 500cc 1929 Praga DOHC, 500cc The B.D. (Breitfeld & Daneck) 500 DOHC design was introduced in 1927. It was a very novel design for the twenties, but it became a great succes, both because of its neat lines and its automatic lubrication system. At that time the rival firms were still struggling to get a single OHC engine oiltight and reliable! But remember that Czech technology in the first part of the 20th century was very up to date, as is witnessed by this special and rare 1929 Praga. The machine is fully restored to concours condition.

    1958 Scootacar, 197cc 1958 Scootacar, 197cc The Scootacar was first manufactured in 1958 by the Hunslett Engineering Company of Leeds (UK). The vehicle was created by Henry Brown who had designed the Scootacar around the body of an occupant sitting astride the engine. The body was made from fibreglass and attached to a steel chassis that included a steel floorpan. The vehicle was advertised as having a "Car-sized door" and so access in and out of the Scootacar involved no crouching as was needed in other 3-wheelers of the period. There were three versions; the Mk 1, which was powered by a Villiers 197cc air-cooled engine. In this version the driver sat astride the engine as on a motorcycle. In the Mk2 a new body was designed that included and a car type chair for the rear passenger which was offset at 45 degrees. The Mk 3 was powered by a larger twin-cylinder 324cc Villiers engine. Manufacture ceased in 1965. This picture was kindly provided by

    Sheffield Henderson

    Bike Image Description
    1922 Sheffield Henderson Bradshaw, 350cc 1922 Sheffield Henderson Bradshaw, 350cc Henderson sidecars were made by the Aero works of Fitzwilliam Street, Sheffield. In November 1919 the company announced the Sheffield Henderson Motorcycle, designed by Leonard B. Henderson, who was an aeronautical engineer. In a relatively short time the make gained a fantastic reputation in speed events; in June 1922 the factory even claimed several world records in the 250 cc class. ( see scan 1922 advert). Sheffield Hendersons could be had with a side valve or overhead valve Blackburne engine or a Bradshaw engine. The machine had a three speed Burman gearbox. The Motor cycle wrote in 1922: Their curious but not unattractive-looking frame construction is now familiar to most people. Indeed, Sheffied Henderson must have been one of the very few makes that placed the toolbox under the top tube behind the steering head, a position that obviated a rather unusual tank shape, an early form of saddle tank. However, fame was short-lived: Sheffield Henderson motorcycle production ended in 1923. This rare survivor, equipped with the interesting oil-cooled OHV Bradshaw engine with outside flywheel, is an older restoration.

    Named after the Derbyshire town in which it is based, chassis specialist firm Spondon Engineering was founded by Bob Stevenson and Stuart Tiller in 1969. Several early Spondons used Yamaha two-stroke racing engines such as the 125cc AS1, TZ250 and 750cc OW31. Spondon has built frames for roadsters including the Silk and Norton's F1 and produced numerous specials powered by Japanese fours, from Suzuki's GS1000 to Kawasaki's ZZ-R1100.

    She was build by Spondon in 1970, based on a Brian Woolly and Des Bone design, engine is a Kreidler 50cc by Alfonse Mohr of Koblenz, she was raced by Barry Hickmott in 1971s Austrian motoGP.


    This was a tricycle fitted with a 98cc Villiers engine in the manner of an autocycle but with three wheels. It appeared in 1932 and was intended to offer stability and a little power assistance to the elderly. It was a nice idea but was launched at a difficult time and no more was heard of the little machines from Egham in Surrey.


    Steppke engines were built in the Treptow Machine Tools factory in East Berlin. The Steppke was East Germany's second most popular auxiliary engine, and its style is reminiscent of the Mosquito and the Lohmann.

    East German engineers apparently studied the Mosquito before designing the Steppke. The engine has a good reputation for reliability and strength, and it's easy to use the lever (similar to the Lohmann) to locate the engine roller onto the tyre.
