This 1 hp motor scooter was designed by Granville Bradshaw and was one of the earliest and best forms of this vehicle. The frame is made of light duplicated tubes arranged in an open form, with a seat fitted in the rear and a steering head in the front. A wide foot-board is fixed in the open portion of the frame. External-contracting hand brakes are fitted to the front and rear wheels and are controlled by the foot and hand levers. The scooter is powered by a 125cc single-cylinder engine.
