1935 S.O.S. 172cc 'Brooklands Special'
Registration no. CPC 699
Frame no. AS 2037
Engine no. SY 577
S.O.S., variously the 'Super Onslow Special' or 'So Obviously Superior' was started by the famous Vale-Onslow concern in Birmingham, establishing a great reputation for excellent, competition-worthy two-strokes. Later, the S.O.S. was made by T.G. Meeten of London, who continued the tradition of improvement by use in competition.
First registered in January 1935 as an 'S.O.S. Special' to T.G. Meeten himself, this competition S.O.S. with an authoritative history of being raced by Meeten, has been restored to a high standard and retains its original Villiers 'Brooklands' engine unit.
Newly rebuilt, the S.O.S. will need registering using the DVLA letter provided, together with the original RF.60 and should then be ready to go, subject to the normal checks.
