Dunelt machines which, as most riders know, are supercharged by means of their truncated pistons, are being produced for 1928 in new forms, although the prices remain unchanged. The new ” sports K,” (249 c.c.) has many improvements and is now capable of 60 m.p.h. The frame has been entirely redesigned and has wider forks and chain-lines so that 3i in. tyres can be fitted. This point will be much appreciated by those who desire comfort—the humour, perhaps, lies in the fact that a 2i h.p. two-stroke can be equipped with tyres of the same section as those of many Ford cars !
Mechanical lubrication is now adopted, a sight feed, which is part and parcel of the oil-tank filler-cap, being incorporated. The specification includes wider hubs, larger mudguards, shock absorbers built into the forks, a two-plate clutch and, over and above all, a saddle tank of very smart design. The standard ‘! K” costs £35 10s. and the ” Sports K” £38 10s., and electric lighting set with a head and tail lamp and a separate generator being supplied for £5 extra. The 500 c.c. Dunelt machines remain unchanged both as regard price and specification.
