1925 Omega 2.5hp Pictures

The most interesting machine I came across was a 1925 Omega 2.5Hp. Being exhibited by the Coventry Motorcycle Museum, this very original machine had languished in a Warwickshire workshop for decades before being donated to the museum. It was first registered to William Green before passing through several hands. William Green first began making motorcycles at Croft Road, Coventry in 1919. He unveiled his first Omega motorcycles at the 1919 International Cycle, Motor Cycle and Accessories Exhibition at Olympia in London. Prior to this, William had previously worked in the motorcycle trade for both the Humber and Premier companies. This model is a 1925 293cc (2.5hp) model, that is shortly to be restored by the museum. We shall have to keep an eye out for the restored article…. For anyone interested in finding out more on the Museum, check out www.transport-museum.com/. I haven’t been to the museum myself, but I’ve heard nothing but great reports.

On display at the 2010 Footman James Classic Motor Show, at the NEC.  Read the blog for more event details.
