The Cyclemaster is the best-known model of cyclemotor in the UK. But did you know it was actually a German invention?

The photo above is my 1952 German Rabeneick ‘Cyclemaster Taxi.’
Compare it with one of my English Cyclemasters, a1951 model on a Jagrose frame (below).

This Rabeneick had stood in a small museum for 10 years; The seller and I got on very well. Now it has arrived I can start work on it. It will be mechanically restored so I can use it on the road, but the cosmetic patina will be left untouched.
