Witall

Witall were motorcycles produced in 1920, by the Witall Garage of New Cross, London.

The company launched two quite different models. Both were lightweights and two-stroke. One was a sporting-type and the other more of a tourer.

The sporting Model A had a sloping top-tube to its frame and a 269cc TDC engine with Roc two-speed gearbox, TT handlebars and Saxon forks.

Touring Model B kept the forks and Roc transmission, but the horizontal top-tube dropped at the saddle end and the engine became a 269cc Arden.

In April, 1920, the firm offered sixteen days delivery, but this was at a time when any machine was difficult to come by. It seems that few were bought as they were soon gone from the market.
