1919
SUNBEAMS

Model range
Civilian production re-commenced in January 1919 with three models emerging from Marston.

The 3 h.p. was available as a 'Sporting' model which resembled the 1914 T.T. model, and a 'Standard' model based on the War Department General Service (GS) model with its heavier chains and large diameter hubs.

An 8 h.p. JAP engined v-twin, similar to the last JAP-engined military Sunbeam, was produced for heavy sidecar work.
