Originally a bicycle manufacturer, Coventry Eagle built a diverse range of machines using proprietary engines, mainly those of J A Prestwich, from 1901 to 1939. Although the firm manufactured its own small-capacity two-stroke engines, the majority of its 'strokers' used Villiers power like the example offered here (believed to be an F24 model) which is powered by a 196cc 2E engine driving via an Albion gearbox. Registered 'LG 6060', a Cheshire mark, this Coventry Eagle was last taxed in 1978; the licence was issued in Cheshire, suggesting the machine had remained in that county all its life. The machine was acquired by the elderly vendor many years ago from a local garage and, apart from a couple of outings, has been kept in storage. Its condition seems generally very good, thanks to the application of a protective coating of oil. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.
