1920
SUNBEAMS

Model Range
The three model range from 1919 continued with minor variations to the 3 h.p. models.

Cycle Parts
A new, Marston patented, leaf spring suspension was introduced for the front forks of the 3 h.p. models along with a rear drum brake. The front wheel retained a bicycle-style stirrup brake.

The 3 h.p 'Sporting Model' was differentiated by lower handlebars, footrests rather than footboards, and a higher compression engine.

Engine and Gearbox
The magneto drive cover takes on its traditional lozenge shape. The engine was given larger cooling fins.
