Description

Founded in 1919 in Sheffield England Dunelt Motorcycles was founded by two steel makers and engineers, Dunford and Elliott, the company a combination of their names.

Their first motorcycle was an innovative 499 cc two-stroke single fitted with a supercharger. The company specialised in good quality sidecars from 1926 and a Dunelt motorcycle was first to cross the Egyptian desert from Cairo to the Siwa Oasis and back in 1924. Dunelt also enjoyed racing success and won the Double Twelve Hour World Record at Brooklands with a Model K in 1928. Dunelt moved into commercial three-wheeled cars and marine engines during the post War era and eventually shut in 1957.

A buff logbook that accompanies this lot states it as a 1931 Model K, although we believe  the bike to be of 1926 vintage, it is also supplied with a UK V5C logbook.
