Though my passion is for German motorcycles, especially those makes that were available in the UK, I am putting together a register of TWN Cornets and would be grateful if past and present owners could pass on any history, memories or information about the Cornets they might once have owned or still own.
The TWN Cornets were sold along the Fulham Road by London dealers Claude Rye, first at £159 10s 6d and finally at £129 10s 6d, and I believe around 400 were sold.
For an extra £2 10s 6d (those were the days!) you could get one delivered to your nearest railway station, so Cornets would have been spread all over the country.
If you have or had a TWN Cornet, contact OBMEditor@mortons.co.uk and I’ll pass on your messages to Bernie. – Ed.
