Not for nothing did Clyno's 1913 advertising promote its product as 'The Side-Car Motor Cycle', for the Wolverhampton firm was one of the first to give serious thought to engineering an effective motorcycle combination. Cousins Ailwyn and Frank Smith had formed The Clyno Engineering Co in 1909 for the purpose of marketing an adjustable belt pulley for motorcycle transmissions, soon turning to the assembly of complete machines using Chater Lea frame fittings and Stevens engines. A 2½hp lightweight model, powered by a 269cc two-stroke engine, was manufactured alongside Clyno's v-twin sidecar tugs from 1913 and continued in developed form after WWI. This rare Clyno lightweight was purchased from Andy Tiernan Classics and last ran in the summer of 2019. Offered for re-commissioning, the machine comes with an HPI printout and V5C Registration Certificates. The vendor is slimming down his collection of motorcycles, hence the sale.
