Rover 1913 500cc 3-speed.
To many people the name “Rover” is only linked to automobiles; yet, Rover was a highly successful motorcycle manufacturer for many years. The first model was marketed in 1903.
In the recession years before 1910 the production stopped for some time; between 1905 and 1910 no Rovers were produced.
The factory entered the market again with a robust 500cc model.
This 1914 example features Sturmey-Archer 3 speed hub, foot controlled clutch, Brown and Barlow carburettor, magneto ignition, toolboxes, bulb horn and full acetylene lighting set.
The machine has been splendidly restored (a perfect original machine was used as a guideline) and would truly be an asset to any collection.
