Nice cycles, I like the racks, didn't Villiers make an early aircraft engine? Thanks for the post.

yes they made plane engines including a two stroke one early on.they made mainly small two strokers for every type of use you could think of.lawnmowers,three wheel cars,boats inboard and outboard most famously the engine on british seagull outboards,stationary engines for all purposes and even the motor known as a little gem used to power a washing machine for areas without electricity.i will look for pics of the washing machine on the net and post one if i can find one.

Luke this is the first site I went to when I was looking up info on the bikes

http://www.autocycle.freeserve.co.uk/

from what I have seen the bikes are very popular in Britan and have seen them tooling around in the background on the news once in awhile.

i have one of there tea towles.i would think they would post you one.or i could order one and post it.the insurance has nothing to do with the club but members get cheeper rate.the company is useless though if you have a machine that isn't as common and boring as sh*t they don't want to know.even well known machines if they don't have it on there database they wont insure it.all insurance over here is a rip off.i use ebike insurance as they are easy to deal with and cheep.but i don't think they cover anyone outside the uk.

I was delighted to see the pictures of the Wall Auto Wheel as I really like the design. I wouldn't mind having a go at putting together a replica to tell the truth.

As of what I have seen the Rudge had twin tailpipes fitted originally - course I might be wrong..

I would have loved to be able to get a shaftdrive setup for the bike in progress.. but this time I have gone with a GEBE again, a 32 this time..

But **** I am jealous - and a fellow UK'er. so what was the address again... *goes to find her no.10 Jemmy*
