I appear to have got this machine onto ebay without it being removed by quoting facts from the 1927 patent :D

Here's some 1955 Pathe outtakes of Granville Bradshaw talking about his Omega engine which he hoped would revive Britain's motor manufacturing industry. He's best known for his innovative aircraft and motorbike engines, but I think his amusement machine designs made him more money.

(Sound starts about half way through).

Please help me find the patent for Bradshaw's Little Stockbroker. Bought one at auction, seems to have original and newer parts plus poor recent restoration for the auction.

This 1920 ABC 398cc motorcycle designed by Granville Bradshaw is up for sale on Aug 14th - evidence of Bradshaw's flare for innovative engineering.
Designed by Granville Bradshaw and produced by the Sopwith Aircraft Company, the ABC drew heavily on its designer's wartime experience in the development of air-cooled aero engines. A ground-breaking design, the ABC engine was a 398cc overhead-valve flat twin with integral four-speed gearbox. Legend has it that the power unit was designed in under three weeks, but Bradshaw did not stop there, going on to pen the duplex loop frame and sprung front and rear forks that marked out the ABC as one of the most advanced motorcycles of its day. It was fast too, J L E Emerson breaking the one-hour record twice at Brooklands, the second time at an average speed of 70.44mph, a feat that necessitated exceeding 80mph on occasions.

If anybody wants to know all about Granville Bradshaw, a book all about is life and his “genius” inventions can read Barry M Jones book “A Flawed Genius“ published by Panther Publishing.
He was involved in Radial engines, motorbikes, aeroplanes, Wankel engines , as well as The Little Stockbroker.
