I bought this Synchromatic Powerpak last summer. I only rode it twice. It rides fine, but I have other favourites and I hate to see this one parked up when it’s taxed, MOT’d, starts easily …and Synchromatic Powerpaks are such great cyclemotors to ride!

So although I would have preferred to keep a synchro in my collection, I’m offering it for sale so that it gets used.

The previous owner went through the engine and reported that all was okay with it. The BSA frame is a good one. It’s nicely weathered but very presentable. The pictures should show you all you need, but if you have any questions, please email.

Sinclair Goddard and the Festival of Britain, 1951

pcfest.jpg

Sinclair Goddard & Co Ltd was chosen by the Council of Industrial Design to exhibit the Powerpak at the 1951 Festival of Britain. It was shown at the South Bank and also in the travelling exhibition that went around the country.

I think Sinclair Goddard probably stole a march on their main rivals Cyclemaster and Trojan in terms of marketing in those first few years. In the photo below you can see a Powerpak advertising the 1951 Earls Court Show – under a slogan that summarizes why clip-ons and cyclemotors were popular in this short period of time in the early 1950s:

“Personal Independent Transport for All”
