1914 Wolf classic British motorcycle

This machine, although almost 100 years old, has seen little use. It was bought in 1914 and its owner was killed in the First World War after riding it for just a couple of months. When he went to war, he stored it in a cellar and it was forgotten, bricked up, the house demolished and the cellar and bike covered with tarmac for a car park. It was uncovered after almost 90 years only when the site was being redeveloped.

Wolf motorcycles were made in Wolverhampton and like many motorcycle factories, its bread and butter was making bicycles. That’s pretty obvious looking at the frame and brakes, but power comes from a hefty two-stroke engine and belt drive.
