Cyclemotor, Trojan mini motor. I have owned this machine since 2013.
The 1953 Trojan mini motor engine is in show condition with only regular maintenance work having been carried out. It is fitted to a gents Raleigh cycle, both in very good / smart condition as is clearly shown in the pictures.
The engine is 49 cc . Transmission is by drive by Friction roller onto rear tyre

The cycle is in mostly original condition with good condition wheels and tyres, leather saddle, leather letter pouch, Sturmey Archer gears, lights and finished in Post Office Red livery.
The petrol tank was chromed some years ago with new transfers and has the correct petrol cap with the brass insert in the top.

The Trojan Minimotor was originally designed by Vincent Piatti in 1946 as a power unit for portable lathes; he saw its advantages as a cycle-attachment & introduced it in Italy as the ‘Mini Motore.’
