A small 4 page fold out sales catalogue of Coventry Eagle 2 stroke models. Powered by different capacities of Villiers engines there is just something about the design of these lightweight machines. Perhaps it is the all pressed steel frame, the name of Silent Superb, the cast alloy primary chain case (available on the M5 and M6 models only) or the natty little twin fishtail mufflers? Whatever, they certainly make you look twice at them. Sadly production of Coventry Eagle motorcycles didn’t survive WW2 and factory records were destroyed in bombings in 1940. However the Vintage Motorcycle Club in the UK has a marque specialist who is very helpful should you find yourself in need of information.
Models covered in this leaflet are the M1, M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, and M9. If you wanted to see their 4 stroke models you had to see ‘The Special Folder’.

A clipping from The MotorCycle November 30th issue 1933 of the Olympia motorcycle show where on Stand 89 Coventry Eagle were proudly displaying their current models for 1934.
Coventry Eagle also seemed popular as static props for people to have their photo taken on. This appears to be a model from about 1932. No doubt father would not have approved!
