Lot Details
1948 Brockhouse 98cc Corgi MkI
Registration no. 589 UXS
Frame no. 4098
Engine no. MkIW 8856
A development of the wartime Welbike, a small ‘fold-away’ lightweight motorcycle designed for dropping by parachute, the Corgi first appeared in 1948. Manufactured by Brockhouse Engineering, of Southport, it was powered by a built-under-license Excelsior Spryt 98cc two-stroke single. A kick-starter and dog clutch were soon introduced on the Mark II version and then for 1949 a two-speed gearbox and telescopic forks became available as options. Presented in generally good condition, this restored MkI Corgi is unusual in retaining its original exhaust system. The machine is offered with Swansea V5 registration document.
