THE ENGINE UNIT -
powerful, compact, reliable, quiet
(even the air intake is hooded to reduce noise) and practically
fool-proof, is easily accessible and at the same time positioned
so that there is practically no risk clothing getting soiled by
contact with it. The driver is positive to the rear wheel
through a two-speed gear-box .
THE ENGINE UNIT
nestles into the frame in such a
way that it is easily accessible and at the same time well
dirt and knocks. Notice the
strangler lever on the carburetter, to ensure easy starting, and
the funnel to reduce noise from
the air intake.
TWO SPEED GEARS -
provide impressive acceleration an hill
climbing performance in bottom gear, and a high, economical, and
quiet cruising speed in top.
The gear change is operated
without taking your hands of the handlebar, and the linkage of
the clutch and change makes it impossible to "crash" or damage
THE FLYWHEEL MAGNETO GENERATOR
(shown here with cover removed)
gives a power of 17 watts at 6 volt - ample for the powerful
15/15 watt headlamp and electric horn as well as for the
ignition. The flywheel incorporates strong permanent magnets
which, properly treated, will never lose their magnetic power.
