Villiers Engineering Co Ltd was a manufacturer of small engines for motorcycles and other uses, and cycle parts, based in Villiers Street, Wolverhampton.

Telegraphic Address: “Villiers, Wolverhampton”. But Marston was dissatisfied with the pedals on his machines, which he bought in. In , he dispatched his son Charles Marston to the USA on a selling trip but included in his instructions that he must discuss pedal engineering with Pratt and Whitney in Hartford, Connecticut and come back with a high class pedal and the machinery for making it.

He was impressed by the production system and the labour saving devices he saw there. He pointed out that “it was not possible to develop these at Sunbeamland, which had long been working on another plan, but it was possible to start them in a new factory”. Under the direction of Charles, the new company made cycle parts for the Sunbeam cycle. As the factory was producing more parts than Sunbeam required, Villiers also sold components to other manufacturers.

Frank Farrer , who was then the manager of Palmer Tyre ‘s Coventry depot, was appointed as sole agent for the sale of the surplus pedals.

Speedway bikes are completely unique, they are cc, have a single fixed gear and no brakes! Bikes are differentiated by the engines used, the rear wheel sprockets and the gear ratio chosen. In fact, most of the riders in the Japanese group ride their competition bikes daily through the streets of Japan and use them as their primary means of transportation.

This re-print of the tenth edition has been updated with the inclusion of the supplement from the eleventh edition, the remainder of the engine type information being identical in all respects in both editions.

This information was minimized and ultimately omitted from the subsequent editions.

The two editions re-printed by VelocePress were chosen as being the most comprehensive as they cover both a broad model range and extensive time-line of Villiers engines. This publication has been out-of-print and unavailable for many years and is becoming increasingly more difficult to find on the secondary market.

Villiers is another of those resonant names from the tangled history of 20th Century British mechanical engineering. In my youth, slightly unkempt men with too much hair in their ears, and eyebrows that could use the attentions of a small hedge trimmer, would wax lyrical about the Villiers two-horse-power-two-stroke this or the J. To me they just looked like knackered lawn mower engines but these corroding lumps of metal clearly had some, very well hidden, charm.

At the end of the nineteenth century John Marston was building aesthetically beautiful Sunbeam bicycles in aesthetically particularly un-beautiful Wolverhampton, England.

Once, I was the proud owner of an ancient clinker launch, possibly wartime vintage, with an even older petrol inboard. Fairly early on in the relationship it needed a new engine, the inboard being beyond redemption. Well I certainly aspired towards heaps of pleasure, especially at that age, but I needed a few hints on the way there, maybe a fault-finding chart that led you through options such as dirty fuel, blown gaskets or blocked back passages.

But the chaps who ran British Seagull simply advised a thorough check of the spark plug and then: But will people do this? We have no sympathy with these people at all… Strong words, but of limited value for an engine long past its best.
