ABC Skootamota

ABC Skootamota were motorcycles built between 1919 and 1923.
  • 1919 The scooter first appeared, being one of several designed by Granville Bradshaw. It was one of the best designs of the times. It was a simple affair, consisting of a tubular frame with no suspension, and sixteen-inch wire-wheels with external contracting hand brakes for each. The engine was positioned above the rear wheel and had an eoi valve layout.
  • 1920 The Skootamota had a design change, to a single cylinder 123cc OHV engine by ABC, also a Bradshaw design, and transmission by chain to the rear wheel. The fuel tank was positioned over the engine and the saddle to the front so that the rider could sit when in motion.
  • 1924 The machine was built and marketed by Gilbert Campling of Albermarle Street, Piccadilly, London.
