The report in October 11th states that it is 6 months since the introduction of the Bradshaw engined New Scale and it has already become one of the most popular machines embodying this engine. Its success has been due largely to its excellent steering qualities. A new frame should still enhance its reputation by slightly sloping the top tube; a still lower saddle position has been obtained. In the steering column is fitted a small cross-bar for mounting the headlamp bracket speedometer, or other accessory
