The Ivy Motorcycle

I would have had problems identifying this motorcycle had it not stated 'The Ivy' in large letters across its petrol tank. Not sure of the model though, obviously two stroke and from immediately post WW1 I would say. The wheel discs are a great period accessory and very eye catching.

Ivy motorcycles were made from 1910 to 1931 by S A Newman in Aston Cross, Birmingham and used proprietary engines from Precision, JAP, Peco and Villiers.

If anyone out there can identify the model and provide more information please do comment or get in touch.
