Grindlay Sidecar
A short-lived marque, Grindlay-Peerless is nevertheless guaranteed its place in motorcycling history thanks to works rider/tuner Bill Lacey, who became the first '500' rider to exceed 100 miles in the hour on British soil in August 1928. Formerly employed by the Riley Cycle Company, co-founder Alfred Robert Grindlay was in partnership with Thomas E Musson by 1921. Musson & Grindlay manufactured high-quality sidecars, a line of business that Alfred Grindlay continued after the dissolution of his partnership with Musson in 1923 and the founding of Grindlay-Peerless. Believed to date from the early/mid-1920s, this single-seater model carries a small label that says 'Miller', possibly the name of its supplier. The chair appears to have been restored some time ago and remains in good condition, interior trim and wicker basket included. Its date of acquisition is not known but it has been in a collection for many years. No reserve.
