Established in Victorian times as a bicycle manufacturer, Coventry-Eagle built a diverse range of motorcycles using proprietary engines from 1901 onwards, though machines only began to be produced in significant numbers after WWI. Abandoning its larger models following the Depression, Coventry-Eagle concentrated on bread-and-butter lightweights. A landmark development for the company was the introduction in 1927 of a two-stroke lightweight featuring a novel pressed-steel frame, and this method of construction spread to larger models the following year, remaining a characteristic of the marque until it ceased motorcycle production in 1939. This Coventry Eagle 'pressed steel' lightweight was purchased by the vendor in July 2006 (receipt on file) shortly after it had been restored by the previous owner. Not used since acquisition, 'YSV 692' is described as in apparently sound condition, with very good brightwork and excellent frame/cycle parts. The machine is offered with wiring diagram, sundry invoices, Coventry Eagle and Villiers manuals, and Swansea V5C document. A replacement gear lever knob comes with the machine.
