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. This Corgi MkI was purchased circa 1999 from an elderly gentleman who had owned it for some 50 years. There are no registration documents with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
