In the 1950s and 1960s they were known for their range of Villiers engined lightweight motorcycles, with engines ranging from 98cc – 250cc. In the late 1950s AMC took over the factory in Coventry and shortly afterwards moved manufacturing to the James factory belonging to AMC. The bike in the auction is a trials version fitted with the AMC Villiers competition engine. The engine has not run for some time, but does turn over. It has a current V5c and an old green logbook.
