This book sets out to record the amazing achievements of a real British industrial empire, the Wolverhampton-based Villiers Engineering Company; spanning over 100 years of production, from the original cycle business to the final sell-off.

The first Villiers engine arrived in 1912 and during the great years of the British motorcycle industry many products were Villiers-powered. But it didn't stop there as Villiers also sold its products to manufacturers world-wide. The list of Villiers engine users is truly immense, and as far as motorcycles are concerned its like a who's who, with names including AJS, Ambassador, Cotton, Coventry Eagle, DMW, DOT, even Triumph and Vincent HRD. Rob Carrick and Mick Walker have also included many of the other British two-stroke engines available in the period, such as Alpha, AMC, Anzani, Excelsior, JAP, RCA and Royal Enfield. This book sets out to record the amazing achievements of a real British industrial empire, the Wolverhampton-based Villiers Engineering Company; spanning over 100 years of production, from the original cycle business to the final sell-off of the remaining industrial engine arm at the beginning of this century. Villiers Everybody's Engine is a wonderful, informative piece of British industrial history.
