HE were motorcycles produced circa 1935 by George Hanstock who used the initials of his firm, Hanstock Enginering, of Maltby, near Rotherham in Yorkshire.

He built frames to carry a range of Villiers two-stroke engines. The machines were not listed, so most must have been sold locally. At least two went to Maltby residents.
