Humber 1902 review
Some of the earliest motorcycles produced to the Phelon and Rayners patented engine as frame member design were made under license by Humber Ltd., in Coventry. Disputes over royalty payments led to this licence arrangement being terminated in 1904. Announced in 1900, believe that 1902 was the first year of production.
All machines had single cylinder four stroke, inletover-exhaust sidevalve motors. There were two variants of the early solos: the standard "Coventry" model and the upmarket "Beeston" model. This machine Humber 1902 is apparently from 1902. It has a 345cc engine, presumably delivering 2.76hp It has a mechanically operated exhaust valve and an atmospheric inlet valve and is fiitted with a clutch.
