1959 Phillips P40 PandaThe first two mopeds we saw were this 1959 Phillips P40 Panda and...

NSU Quickly... an NSU Quickly.

James CometThe remains of a James Comet or, more probably, the remains of two James Comets since the engine looks too early for the frame.

Honda DaxA Honda Dax in reasonably original (ie: not messed about with) condition.

Suzuki step-throughA Suzuki 80 priced at £325.

1941 James autocycleA War-time James autocycle (the registration dates from 1941) carrying a £900 price tag.
