The Rocket Man
The genius of Archie Low
An Italian Masterpiece
Brief History of the Marque: NUT
Production began in 1912 and by 1913 they were already winning races on the Isle of Man. Using their own engines and also those of JAP and Villiers, the name of the Newcastle Upon Tyne marque became synonymous with powerful V-twin sports machines.
From "Sports Mounts for 1928"
The most interesting exhibit on the N.U.T. stand was the 746 c.c. sports model. A special engine is fitted to this model only, with lightened reciprocating parts, and a Binks two-float carburetter. Twist grip control is standard.This firm are also producing two-strokes of the super sports variety.

nut 680 1927
hi we are in the process of renovating a 1927 nut but it doesnt appear to have an oil pump have you any pics of the rh side it looks as it drives off the crank end on the mag drive
As the engine is most likely by JAP, then there are many other marques which use the same unit most notably Brough Superior. Click here for pictures of the RHS of a BS 680

Hellow, I probably have as much experience of NUT motorcycles as anybody alive. Since 1955 I have owned eleven in total, of which I still have two. In 1961 I rode a 1914 NUT from Somerset to Newcastle Upon Tyne to follow up on replies
from my letter to the Newcastle Journal. I do have a fair amount of literature etc. Please contact me by email if I can be of any assistance. Peter. Sparkes.
