Wooler Flat Four
This 1955 Wooler Flat Four shaft driven
motorcycle had a number of unique features, my favourite of which is the 2 nut
size construction that allows a home mechanic to totally disassemble the bike
with just 2 spanners.
The standout feature is of course that unified fuel tank/headlight assembly but
the closer you look at the bike the more interesting little features you
notice. That front suspension is quite remarkable as is the fact that the front
and rear wheels are fully interchangeable.
The extremely clean engineering and no-nonsense design is hugely appealing, it
seems a damn shame that John Wooler passed away in 1956 leaving only 5 of these
remarkable bikes in existence.
