1922 In February, the first Carlton machine was exhibited at the Scottish Motorcycle Show. It was a lightweight with a 269cc two-stroke Villiers engine and a choice of single or two speed with clutch and kick starter. Few other details are available. The marque then all but disappeared apart from an occasional appearance from time to time.
1930 One model appeared as a typical single of the time, with a Sturmey-Archer overhead-valve engine driving a hand-change gearbox. Once again all went quiet and little was heard of the company.
