Turner Manufacturing Co: Motorcycles
Note: This is a sub-section of Turner Manufacturing Co
Turner was a motorcycle produced in 1946. It was a radical contraption and a one-off. It was seen in Brussels in April 1946, called the Turner Byvan, and was constructed from components left over after the end of World War II. It had a 126 cc Royal Enfield wartime Flying Flea engine and three-speed gearbox, mounted on top of the pressed-steel front forks and which drove the wheel by chain. The rest of the machine was a large box, fitted with forks to provide a mounting for a wheel at the rear, and with a seat for the rider on top. In effect, it was just a large parcel carrier and nothing further came of it.
