Douglas Pidcock's 1922 Electric Motorcycle

Originally built from a Douglas 2 3/4 frame then modified with Mr Pidcocks own frame

Mr Pidock converted the motorcycle to use on his daily journey to work at a engineering company in Peterborough during the time of petrol rationing.

The bike was featured in Motor Cycling magazine in 1942 and 1943

Speed is selected by a lever 3 positions 6v, 12v and 18v and the clutch lever operating a Lucas solenoid switch to bring in the motor. The motor is a Morris lorry starter motor.

Thanks Kim!
