Calthorpe 1926 Model D5A 350 cc 1 cyl ohv



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
