Lethbridge Motors of Birmingham
Lethbridge were motorcycles produced by the company in 1923.
The designer of the Lethbridge opted for an internal pair of flywheels instead of the usual massive external one. It had a special scavenging device that claimed to cool the sparking plug points. In other respects, the motorcycle was conventional, fitted with a 293cc Villiers engine, a two-speed Burman gearbox having both clutch and kick-start and all-chain drive.
They also offered a further model with a 348cc sv Blackburne engine, three-speed Burman gearbox, all-chain drive, internal expanding Webb brakes to both wheels and Maplestone centre-spring forks. A BTH Sparklight electric lighting set was listed as an option for either model.
