Vin was a motorcycle produced circa 1912, possibly in London.

This rare make had a 573cc ohv single engine, two-speed Jardine gearbox and all-chain drive. The petrol tank followed the line of the drop-frame top-tube, so had a distinct kink to it. It had Druid-style braced forks, with their one spring located inside the steering column.
