A.B.C. Scootamota motor scooter

Made:
1920-1921 in Croydon

A.B.C. Scootamota motorcycle, designed by Granville Bradshaw. These were first introduced in 1919 and were one of the earliest and best examples of what we would now just call a scooter. A cheap, simple and practical vehicle, Motor Cycling magazine was particularly impressed by its stability. Unsurprisingly the design was soon copied by other manufacturers, however Skootamota ceased production in 1921.
