1962 DMW 'Deemster'

Now here's a rarity - the DMW Deemster. Launched in 1962, the Deemster was an attempt by British firm DMW to break into the Ariel Leader/Velocette Vogue 'enclosed small tourer' market.

A strange motorcycle/scooter hybrid, it was powered by a Villiers 250cc two stroke twin engine, and had 12 inch wheels and leading link forks. A sales failure, it was bought by a number of Police forces.

Fully enclosed version carrying an AA patrolman - looks like an early version of the BMW C1!
