Panther 1927 Panthette 250cc 2 cyl ohv



1927 P&M Panthette 250cc OHV transvers V-twin.

At the Olympia Show in October 1926 the Granville Bradshaw designed Panthette stole the attention from every other machine on offer.
The Panthette bristled with innovations. A transverse V-twin with horizontally split cranckcase, valve spring arrangement utilising laminated springs, enclosed alloy rocker box, motorcar type 4-speed transmission, multi-plate clutch etc.
Only 7 are known to survive untill now.
One in the Sammy Miller collection, one in the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull, two in privat collections in the U.K.,one in South Africa,one in the Dutch Branse Collection and this particular one.
This Panthette, not fully complete, is ready for restoration.
This piece of motorcycle history represents an extremely rare opportunity to acquire and restore a genuine rare bird find, the like of which may never be “rediscovered”.
