Royal Roebuck

From Graces Guide

Jump to: navigation, search

Royal Roebuck were motorcycles produced between 1902 and 1903.

The machine was exhibited by J. F. James at the late-1902 National show. It had a 2.25hp engine fitted vertically into a loop frame, an FN carburettor, Clincher tyres and a front Crabbe brake.

A second model used a 1.75hp Kelecom engine that was fitted behind the seat pillar. Because of that, the wheelbase was longer.
