1926 Calthorpe 350cc OHV model D5A
Calthorpe had a very mixed story with many ups and downs, but they built very nice machines.
The first machines had 211cc two-stroke engines, other four-stroke JAP and Precision power units.
In the 1920s Calthorpe used Villiers as well as Blackburn and JAP engines.
From 1925 onward, 350cc OHV and 500cc OHC single-cylinder models of their own manufacture were built.
This 1926 Calthorpe is sound, unrestored, complete and is an excellent attractive sportsbike and ready for an easy restoration
