The Cyclaid


Sadly this rare beautifully restored example does not belong to me. Mine is the one below. As you can see there is still a little work that needs to be done. Vital statistics :- First registered 1955 0.7 horsepower, 19mph &250 mpg

However, in recent years I have come to realise that I would never be able to restore it to the standard of the one above. Hence I have decided to offer the engine and fittings for sale, but only to a proven enthusiast. I know that the Cyclaid is a comparitively rare machine and thus should attract a good price. Unusually for Cyclaids the wheel pulley is in good condition, having only superficial rust. The engine last ran about a year ago but I considered that it lacked power. This could possibly be due to an incorrect carburettor needle as the one fitted, found in my oddments box, could possibly have come from either my Douglas or Norton Dominator motorcycles. I know the the engine's history from 1971 when I inherited it from my deceased brother. Until about three years ago, it was stored in a box in my attic. The tax disc is for 1960 so presumably my brother did not use it since then. I have both V5 and V5C registration certificates.
Any enquiries by Email only please.
