Blackpool plate, I think issued in 1921. Likely to have a Swallow connection somehow - maybe it got a sidecar later???!!??

As you can see, it was Lyons on the Harley-Davidson. There is one error in the accompanying blurb, the Austin Seven was introduced in 1922, not 1927.

I don't think the bike has anything to do with Swallow, according to the German Wiki page, Lyons was a keen motorcycle racer as a young-un, unlikely he'd bolt a chair onto a race bike with no front brake.....

The picture was apparently taken before the formation of Swallow in 1922.
