1923 Whitley Sidecar Sales Catalogue

The Whitley Manufacturing Co, of Coventry was in sidecar production from 1922 to 1929. This is a small 7 page sales catalogue of what they had on offer, and is indicative of the small type manufacturers that opened up business to offer more stylish and comfortable travel to the newly motorised public. For those who had a family or perhaps the wife just not wanting to perch herself on the back of a rather uncomfortable pillion seat (see our little piece on vintage seats here) these were a cheaper alternative to the motorcar. Models include the Whitlette, a lightweight sidecar for small capacity machines, the Model 12, Model 20, the Sports Model, a semi racing style body, and the Service Model, which actually looks more like a coffin with a wheel.
