Morning all,

Admittedly this might not be for everyone (anyone?), but this post-war oddity appeals to me, although being a single-seater would probably best suit someone without a family - or with a family that they don't like going anywhere with!!!

According to this BSA, BUT I don't think BSA did a 250 two stroke.
My guess would be Villiers

It reminds me strongly of the ubiquitous invalid car. Was it a forerunner?
