Pouncy were motorcycles produced firstly in Dorchester, Dorset, and then in Hampshire, between 1931 and 1936.

See Jack Pouncy

1931 The first model appeared. Called the Cob, it was powered by a 346cc Villiers engine and was typical of the era.

1932 That model was joined by a competition version and a 148cc model.

1933 The Cob was not produced that year, but a 249cc model, listed as the Pal, appeared. During the year the firm made its move to Hampshire.

1935 The range reduced to a new version of the Pal. This had a duplex frame, pivoted-fork rear suspension and a Villiers engine.

1936 The Pal ran on for just that year before production stopped.
