Monard

From Graces Guide

Monard were motorcycles produced between 1964 and 1965 by Geoff Monty and Allen Dudley-Ward.

Both men were successful road racers and had been in business together for many years. Two Monards were built for racing, fitted with 500cc and 650cc pre-unit Triumph engines and Norton gearboxes. The frame comprised a single large-diameter tube running from headstock to curve behind the gearbox, twin downtubes, a rear sub-frame and alloy mounting-plates for the rear fork.

Bill Ivy rode the Monards in 1964, but moved on the following year, so only two machines were ever made.
