Overview

1922 - 1923

This was a cyclecar designed by a young Belgian engineer who had built a car in his own country in 1914, employing the automatic transmission that he used in the R.T.C.  It had twin-belt drive whose ratio was automatically variable by a governor which enlarged and reduced the diameter of the pulleys, similar to the system used on the prewar Clyno motorcycle.  The suspension was unusual too, using a combination of cantilever and coil springs.  Only a handful were sold, possibly because the car uas too unconventional, and also it was not a great price at £160, once the Austin Seven came on the market.
