The most FF-ish Neracar!

This is a version of the Neracar which I had never seen before it was posted on the FF Facebook page a few weeks ago. As can be seen, it has a properly FF-low seat, complete with a backrest and a decent screen and footboards unlike the more common versions of the Neracar. As it says in the caption, this was apparently a late British version with the 350cc Blackburne engine and rear suspension. Looks as if the petrol tank is located behind the seat. Colin Ferguson has researched this machine and says: "It appears that there were three of these made in 1925, but only one is known to survive. Currently being restored in the UK". PNB

Neracar Deluxe

The above bike was called the Neracar Deluxe. Apparently, the three prototypes were made in 1926. It was 5 inches longer than the standard Neracar, and had leaf suspension on the rear. In addition, it boasted a truly bucket seat, a large fuel tank behind the seat which looks as though it could hold around 5 gallons, a dashboard, an adjustable windscreen, and footboards. The Neracar company in the UK folded late in 1926, mainly as a result of the depression at the time, and lack of demand for such motorcycles.
