'Connaught were the producers of excellent 293cc and 347cc two-stroke singles with belt and chain drive to the rear wheel. The range of models became larger when Connaught introduced 1925 models with 348cc sv and ohv Blackburne and ohv Bradshaw (oil-cooled) engines. Bert Perrigo, who afterwards went to BSA, and Jack Sprosen were among leading Connaught riders.' ? Tragatsch.

Connaught motorcycles were produced in Birmingham by the Bordesley Engineering Company, which introduced its first model ? a 293cc single-cylinder two-stroke ? at the 1912 Olympia Show. Like the four-strokes of the time, early two-stroke engines relied on hand-pumped lubrication with oil being delivered from a separate compartment within the fuel tank. Connaught though, was among the first to use 'petroil' ( Petrol & oil ) lubrication, whereby oil is mixed with the petrol, which would become the accepted method and remain so for several decades. However, a hand pump was retained, presumably to allay fears about possible unreliability. After WWI the line-up expanded to include four-stroke models powered by Blackburne, Bradshaw and JAP engines as well as Connaught's own. The little two-stroke remained a fixture of the range until production ceased in 1926.

This particular motorcycle was found back in the early 80's and was restored over a period of time by the previous owner to last who rode the 1923 flat tank Connaught De-Luxe Solo 347cc two stroke in 1991 on a vintage rally, Since then the machine has been stored at his house with a collection of other motorcycles, last taxed in 1991 as can be seen in the pictures, we also have a copy of the insurance document from the same year.

The last owner who had the bike since 1988 decided to downsize his bike collection due to full retirement, this has to be one of those rare chances to purchase a piece of rare history.

Documents included the DVLA V5c logbook, various old photos, a genuine original Connaught sales brochure, as RARE as hens teeth ) and a letter hand written from ( The Vintage Motor Cycle Club Ltd )
+ Various tools, a tin of carbide pills for the lighting, but no matches : (

Look at the third photo on the EBay UK advertisement ( [email protected]@K at Item No: 132935633005 ) and you will see that the last owner found the correct carburettor which has never been fitted, this will come with the bike.

Please look at the pictures and you will see that the Connaught is still covered in a thick layer of dust from the 28 year sleep over, I have not tried to clean the dust and grease off the machine as i will give this pleasure to the new owner, with close inspection and a drop of mixed two-stroke oil and fuel the Connaught started after a few kicks but was immediately shut down as the bike will need a proper re-commission if its to be used again.

I have asked around and found out that this is a very rare Vintage motorcycle ( Not many survivors around, if any ? )
