Revere 2.5hp Motorcycle, 1915
This rare Revere motorcycle was produced by the Sparkbrook bicycle company in 1915, powered by a 2.5hp 269cc single cylinder two-stroke engine. It was designed by WH Whitehouse, who is believed to have been involved with bicycle manufacturer prior to 1915, and made motorcycles under the Whitehouse name from 1919 to 1920, and still with Sparkbrook under the Revere name until 1922.
