Brockhouse Corgi Scooter

On Display

The Corgi was a civilian version of the Welbike collapsible runabout made for paratrooper use during World War II, and appeared in 1945. The overall designer was Lt-Col J.R.V. Dolphin, with the Spryt engine designed by the Excelsior company and produced under licence by Brockhouse.

The machine sold reasonably well initially but it was soon outclassed by more roadworthy and attractive-looking scooters from Italy and, later, Germany.
