Cyril Pullin

Cyril George Pullin (1893-1965) was a British, inventor, engineer and motorcycle race driver born in Hammersmith.

In 1914 Pullin won the Isle of Man TT race. In the 1920's he developed the Ascot car and had various helicopter engine patents.

In 1925 he developed the Powerwheel, a single cylinder rotary engine in the hub of a motorcycle wheel, including clutch and drum brakes. His sister was married to Stephen Leslie Bailey, a then prominent engineer at Douglas Motors, and many of his patents were filed under the name of that company. Sources: Graces Guide
