1928 Levis Machines.
One of the most interesting of the Levis range of machines for 1928 is the All-Weather Model ” M de Luxe,” which will be one of the few machines at the Motor Cycle Show wherein serious attempts to provide efficient weather-proofing have been made. The specification includes a dynamo lighting set, horn, licence holder, spring seat saddle, footboards and legshields and its retail price is but £38 15s. The engine, which has a bore and stroke of 67 x 70 mm. and cubic capacity of 247 c.c. is an air-cooled two-stroke, of which type the manufacturers are the pioneers.
The standard Model” M” with various improvements over the 1927 pattern is now listed at £32, the wellknown model” K” which is now in an entirely new form and is known as the” K2″ costing a few pounds more. The sports model” 0″ shows little change, the price of £39 10s. remaining the same.
The only machine of the Levis range which is not a two-stroke is the overhead valve model “A “. The engine of this has a capacity of 346 c.c. and the pushrods and valve gear are enclosed and lubricated by an oil mist from the timing case.
