Hazlewood Introductions.

Sporting and Touring Light-weights. Passenger Machines mainly Unchanged.

A LIGHTWEIGHT will be added to the existing range of Hazlewood models for 1922. Carried in a frame with dropped top tube, a 293 c.c. J.A.P. engine drives the rear wheel through a two-speed Sturmey-Archer gear with clutch and kick starter, the final drive being by belt. Aluminium foot plates, a cast aluminium chain cover, B. and B. carburetter, and Best and Lloyd drip lubricator, are included in the specification. A sports mode], with long exhaust pipe and footrests in place of footboards, is listed, and is fitted with a neat rear brake, the whole of which, with its operating pedal, can be readily removed, should tyre trouble necessitate the withdrawal of the rear wheel. This machine is listed at £70. A somewhat similar but more stoutly constructed machine will be marketed, and will carry a 4 h.p. J.A.P. engine and three-speed gear.

All Hazlewood models are fitted with wide Druid type forks, and mudguarding has received very special attention, being most efficient. The existing 6 h.p. model, with chain and belt drive, and the 8 h.p. type, with all chain drive, will be retained, but the latter will in future be fitted with an internal expanding rear brake.

The makers are Hazlewood's, Ltd., Coventry.

Hazlewood 1922 2 1/2hp JAP

One of the Hazlewood range, fitted with 2½ h.p. J.A.P. engine and two-speed Sturmey gear box.

Olympia Show - HAZLEWOOD.

Though not newcomers to the lightweight market, the Hazlewood factory has not produced this type for some years. Consequently it is of special interest to note a neat J.A.P.-engined nachine appearing under the Big H. mark. Alternative specifications are offered as far as transmission is concerned, and a sporting model is manuactured. An unusual system of rear braking is employed on this machine, the shoe, heel pedal, and connections . being mounted on a common lug, the whole unit being quickly detachable should need arise to remove the rear wheel. Well-known Hazlewood models that are retained include an 8 h.p. and 6 h.p. twin; a new 4 h.p. single will so be shown, all having J.A.P. engines.
