Nottingham-based Raleigh experimented with cars in the Edwardian period and the 1920s, but it was not until 1933 that its first car entered production. The Raleigh Safety Seven tricycle deployed one wheel at the front and two at the back, an arrangement that allowed more room for passengers than in the rival Morgan three-wheeler. An air-cooled 742cc v-twin motorcycle engine provided the power; the transmission though, was more 'car-conventional', comprising a three-speeds-and-reverse gearbox, single-plate dry clutch, and shaft drive to the rear axle. Up front the single wheel was steered via a motorcycle-type girder fork.
This Safety Seven was formerly owned by VMCC past-president Vic Blake. The vehicle was used by the previous owner for 16 years and was restored in 2007.
