Royal Boscombe

From Graces Guide

Jump to: navigation, search

Royal Boscombe was a motorcycle produced between 1901 and 1902, by a firm based in the town of that name.

They produced a motorized machine by hanging a 1.5hp engine from the downtube of a heavy-duty bicycle and fitting it with a fuel tank, 28-inch wheels with 2-inch tyres and belt final-drive.

The make was very short lived.
