Overview

1920 - 1921

The prototype Thurlow 3-wheeler was built in 1914, but production did not get under way until 1920, and even then, few were made.  It had 10hp V-twin Precision engine which drove by chain to a 3-speed Sturmey-Archer gearbox, final drive to the rear wheel being by belt.  Front suspension was by quarter-elliptics, with helical coils at the rear.  The engine could be started from the seat, with a decompressor which lifted the exhaust valves during the first part of the starting lever's travel.
