A later development of the Hodgson. 1492cc British Anzani engine. Note underslung chassis and 1/4 elliptic rear suspension. Harry had a patent on the latter. Produced in Grant Avenue Leeds, and sold for £350 sports or £450 super sports (supercharged) with a guaranteed 80mph. At this price, few sold, but were always good in competition. Harry went on to race his special Rileys with great success until a serious accident finished both his career and business.
