NUT 1924 700 cc V twin Frame nr 787 engine nr MODEL E 904
Taking its initials from its Newcastle-Upon-Tyne birthplace the NUT was the brainchild of engineer Hugh Mason, who had built several machines under other names before settling on NUT in 1912.
Manufactured by Angus Sanderson and Company, the NUT was a stylish sports machine, mostly V-twin powered and easily distinguishable by the cylindrical fuel tank with two nickel plated straps.
Mason’s victory aboard a JAP engined NUT in the 1913 Junior TT led to an increase in demand and expansion of production on a new site, till World War I intervened.
After the war the range continued to consist mainly of JAP V-twin powered machines of various sizes, before NUT’s own 700 cc V-twin engine arrived in 1924.
The machine is finished in the brown livery which is characteristic of the make, has acetylene lighting and is in good condition throughout.
