Coventry Eagle was founded in 1899 and produced bicycles and motorcycles up to 1940 before moving over to manufacturing guns to support the war effort. Post-war they concentrated on bicycle production under the Falcon name. The Auto Ette was Coventry Eagles' attempt to join the boom in autocycles around the late 30s and was often used by the Home Guard and ARP Wardens during the war because of its reliability and fuel economy.

Looking to be an older restoration this example has been stored under the vendor's workbench for a number of years. The engine turns over but will need a complete recommissioning before use. Comes with a V5C, a couple of old MOTs and a 1952 tax disc.
