Dalesman motorcycles were produced from 1968 to 1974 by Peter Edmondson in Otley, West Yorkshire, England. Working for Edmondson was a Jim Lee, a well-known mechanic, fabricator and frame-builder. The Dalesman installed an Austrian-built 124cc Puch, 12hp at a high 12,000rpm, two-stroke engine and 4-speed gearbox in a duplex Reynolds 531 tube frame first with Puch, then with REH forks, that was versioned for enduros, scrambles and trials. It weighed only 156lb! The company traded quite successfully for a few years but in 1971 Bill Brooker from Greeves joined the firm and its US importer invested in the company to the point of takeover, and it closed its doors in 1974.

This is a beautiful bike almost as it must have left the small factory. Perhaps better. Examples such as this one are rare in the extreme.
