Frame no. 5215
Engine no. M572
This ultra-rare Vintage-era lightweight was manufactured by the Abingdon King Dick company of Tyseley, Birmingham, a firm whose name is more readily associated with high-quality tools. The Model 10 formed part of AKD's all-new range introduced for 1927 and was powered by a 174cc overhead-valve engine, supplied by the Swiss Moser company, which drove via a three-speed Albion gearbox. This engine was also used by Rex Acme, though AKD's literature describes it as their own Abingdon 'King Dick' unit. The machine was restored prior to being inherited from his uncle by the current vendor, and it is not known when it was last used, though it was entered in the VMCC's TT Week Vintage Assembly in 1981 (programme on file). Re-commissioning and the customary safety checks will be required before it returns to the road. Accompanying documentation consists of a selection of 'before restoration' photographs, an old-style continuation logbook (issued 1934), ten old tax discs (1930-1934) and assorted correspondence.
