Frame and overall style looks like a OEC of about 1926 to me.

Hi Leon,
about the date I am also not that certain.
I have taken my assumption based on a 1929 sales catalogue from CE.
The same model from 1930th catalogue (Model F55) was shown with a different gear change lever type and a different exhaust already.

Additionally I have seen some pics of the same bike with several different year date on the plate,
also one with "CH-1929" on.
About the 1927 I am not so sure as well. Just have seen one pic with "CE-1927" on the plate,
but tank colouring seems to be a bit different on that pic.

You can find such pics on ebay from time to time.
Like this:

seems to be a Coventry-Eagle "Flying 500" Model E55 (1929), but most likely earlier (probably 1927), with JAP double-port engine.

Photoprapher is Charles Howell (-> CH), Official Photographer, Pleasure Beach, Blackpool.
It is no official registration plate, but showing the photographer´s initials and year when photo was taken, like Rex already mentioned correctly.

The bike is most likely owned by the photographer.
I have seen some other photos with the same bike before.
But I am not clear what make the bike is.

Hello Nick,

seems to be an Alcyon type 18.
Maybe this site can show you some more info:
http://30kmh.forumactif.com/t569-alcyon-type-18-ou-as3-annee-1938-1939

http://cybermotorcycle.com/gallery/alcyon/images/Alcyon-1939-No-18.jpg

Engine seems to be a Zurcher Type AS3.

Armor was bought by Alcyon company and I assume they have offered same types (maybe with slightly different configuration) with the two brand names after that for a while.

Best regards
Helmut

Hi Leon,

why should it be a Tiger?
Could be also another Triumph model.
Maybe one on this page:

Even the question came up long time ago, maybe somebody is still interested...

This is a Warren-Villiers.

Also MT from Austria used the Pullman Villiers (but was an identical Francis Barnett with MT logo),
La Mondiale in France as well
and also N.S.H, from Germany used the Pullman Villiers engine.

Engine and frame is definitely Victoria KR35SN, also called "Victoria Pionier" which uses same engine as Horex SB35 (engine was build at Horex Columbus company and sold to Victoria).
Victoria KR35SN has been used also from German Army during WW2.
Victoria did not had the "Horex" logo on the cover plate of the rocker box.

Engine was basis for post-war Horex Regina.
