The Cyclecar

BuckinghamBetween the beginning of the twentieth  century and the first World War, the first light cars were produced and a need for low cost motor transport was recognised. An attempt to satisfy this need was met from about 1910, by the production of numerous cyclecars, ultra lightweight three and four wheeled vehicles of simple construction using motorcycle type components. Although of relatively low cost to purchase and run, cyclecars proved not to be durable or suitable for continuous use. Below are a couple of typical cyclecars.
