Page 19. 1912 Hazlewood (Hazelwood) 300cc JAP Pioneer Certificate. SOLD

1912 Hazlewood 300cc JAP engine

This is the only known survivor of this model.

Hazlewoods Ltd were initially cycle builders in Coventry. Motorcycle production started in 1905 and continued until 1923. Many were exported and there appear to be very few survivors now.

I owned this one until 2007, when I sold it to my friend Pascal in France. It has had quite a bit of work done on it to improve its mechanical operation.

He recently asked me to re-sell it for him.

It has a Pioneer Certificate, so you can ride it in the prestigious annual London-to-Brighton Pioneer Run.

There’s a new magneto, and the 3-speed Armstrong rear hub has been rebuilt. It now functions very well, with a clutch.

It starts easily, the engine is strong, and it runs well.

Here’s a period picture of a Hazelwood outfit

In 2008, I was contacted by the grandson of the Mr. Hazlewood who built these machines; the following year another descendent provided additional information for me to add to its history page.

There’s a history of Hazlewoods Ltd

VEHICLE CONDITION: Vintage vehicles are wonderful beasts – but each has an individual personality and they sometimes have bad days just like you and me.
You will need basic mechanical skills (or a local mechanic) to use one on a regular basis.

These are rare vehicles whose values are not necessarily based on running order.
Unless an auction description specifically states that the vehicle is running, THE VEHICLE IS SOLD FOR RESTORATION.
I purposely understate the condition of any vintage vehicle sold on behalf of a 3rd party. I am not liable for the condition of any vehicle not owned by me.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT BID.
