c.1966 Panther 249cc Model 35
Frame no. WS325A
Engine no. 298D 1038
Phelon & Moore (P&M) was founded in Cleckheaton, South Yorkshire in 1904, swiftly becoming renowned for its fondness for engines with inclined cylinders. Introduced in 1923, P&M's first 'Panther' model was of this type and the name would later be extended to the entire range. Panther offered a number of Villiers-engined models alongside its traditional four-stroke singles in the post-war era, introducing the first such twin-cylinder machine in 1957. This was the 2T-powered 249cc Model 35, which was joined the following year by the 35 Sports featuring a tuned engine and larger (7") front brake. 45 Sports and 50 Grand Sports models powered by the 324cc 3T engine were added to the range, the latter boasting telescopic forks and 8" brakes. Telescopic forks featured on the Model 35 when it returned in 1962 after a couple of years absence, and from 1964 until the end of motorcycle production in 1968 this would be Panther's sole two-stroke machine, equipped latterly with the SIBA Dynastart charging/starting system.

Believed to have covered relatively few miles, this Panther Model 35 benefits from a new battery, tyres, chains, brakes and control cables, while the starter has been overhauled and the engine rebuilt with new crankcase seals, big-end bearings and piston rings. The aforementioned works were carried out in 2005/2006 and the vendor describes the machine as in generally good condition. It is offered with sundry restoration invoices, correspondence file, VMCC dating letter, instruction manual, current MoT/tax, Swansea V5 and some minor spare parts.
