EMC 350 split single 1948 For Sale

1948 EMC 350 cc Sports Split Cylinder with valuable number plate.
You don't see many EMC motorcycles and this example is superb. It is fitted with a BTH competition magneto and an Amal GP carburettor so I reckon at some point this example has seen a chequered flag. Road registered with original registration number being HAC 821 (transferable value over £2,000) . Very well presented and highly detailed. A very unusual British motor cycle and part of two stroke development history. It starts easily and gives a very distinctive exhaust note. Nice on the road and ready to go.
EMC was founded 1946 and produced the 350 two stroke until 1952 selling around 1500 machines worldwide. Not a cheap 350 in its day but very, very well built. The split-single system sends the intake fuel-air mixture up one bore to the combustion chamber, sweeping the exhaust gases down the other bore and out of the exposed exhaust port. The rationale of the split-single two-stroke is that, compared to a standard two-stroke single, it can give better exhaust scavenging while minimising the loss of unburnt fresh fuel/air charge through the exhaust port. As a consequence, a split-single engine can deliver better economy, and may run better at small throttle openings. The pilgrim oil pump fed two stoke oil in the cylinder for lubrication. Transmission was a very robust 4 speed Burnham gear box which is positive when going through the gears.

EMC Motorcycles or the Ehrlich Motor Co was a British motorcycle manufacturer. Based in Isleworth, the business was founded by Joseph Ehrlich who immigrated to the United Kingdom from Austria in the 1930s. He was a brilliant engineer working for Puch Styner until escaping to England Pre WW2, Joe Ehrlich made unique two-stroke motorcycles such as the one I have on offer today . Latterly moving on to EMC racing motors, One of which being ridden by Mike Hailwood bringing in top 6 results in GPs in the early 1960,s. He also developed racing car motors and his last project was an ultra-efficient environmental engine which he was developing on behalf of the British government. A truly talented man.
