Overview

1913 - 1914

Another product of Enoch J. West, this was the West cyclecar renamed.  Appearing in April 1913, it was generally similar to the West, but had a 964cc 8hp V-twin Precision engine in place of its predecessor's Charter-Lea, and a reverse gear was provided.  Two body styles were offered, a 2-seater and a carrier body with load capacity up to 4cwt (450lbs).  It drove through a 2-speed gearbox and single-chain final drive.  By September 1913 the air-cooled Precision engine had been replaced by a water-cooled one, and in 1914 a Blumfield twin and 9/10hp Alpha four were also used.  Advertising ceased in September 1914 and production must have ended at about the same time.
