Silver Prince were motorcycles produced from 1919 to 1924, and built by the Tyrus Cycle Co
1921 The first machines appeared as conventional lightweights with Brampton forks, a 269cc Villiers engine and a choice of single speed or two-speed Sturmey-Archer gearbox and chain-cum-belt transmission. Towards the end of the year, a utility vehicle was added. This had either the same Villiers engine or a 292cc JAP, and was sold under the Indian Prince name.
1923 There were no listings for that year.
1924 The name returned, for one more year, on machines with either 147cc or 247cc Villiers engines and the same transmission options. Some machines at 346cc.
