A contemporary advert claimed "These Montgomery machines are for the men who prefer a distinctive mount in appearance and performance. That extra degree of soundness - those little touches which distinguish the 'super' machine from the mere motorcycle, come naturally to the Montgomery and at a price that is amazingly low."

1911 Bradbury 'Speed' 3 1/2hp Single 554cc
Registration no. TPP 345
This machine was restored by Pete Sole, a well-known and respected restorer of Classic and Sports motorcycles until his death in March of this year. He purchased this machine in 2008 and the story that accompanied it was that it had been the gift from a father to son upon the latter's safe return from the trenches of the 1st World War; when Pete chanced upon it, it had been stored for many years in a garden shed and although intact, required sensitive restoration. The Bradbury 3 1/2hp single was created in 1909 and had the unusual design of its crankcase integral (or 'brazed') within its frame, from 1911 onwards it was manufactured in 'Standard' and 'Speed' forms with a variety of options and was marketed by the company as 'the finest hill climber ever made'. The entire restoration project took Pete Sole less than nine months and his Bradbury won titles at Malvern and Stafford shows in its first year of public outings./This machine featured in an article in The Classic Motorcycle January 2010 edition and our thanks go to Mortons Archive for their image and information
