Many thanks to Donald Munnings for this picture of his mother’s friend, Mabel Holt, taken in the late 20′s on a Cedos in the Watford area. Thanks to Alan Digby for helping us identify the bike.  It’s a Model no. 4, 247cc 2 stroke with a removable head and probably a 2 speed Moss gearbox.  This engine was first announced in December 1920 so this bike’s earliest date would be early 1921. Hub brakes were adopted in 1925 and this bike has no front brake. The designers originally believed that front brakes were dangerous! The handlebars were an option from about 1923. So, the latest date for this machine is 1924 (ish).
