Rex Acme 348cc Blackburne
A Brooklands racer ridden by David Whitworth and later ‘Titch’ Allen to much success.
This bike was ridden by David Whitworth in pre-war races at Donington and Brooklands. He had much success, and the bike made a name for itself as a giant killer! The company Rex Acme produced motorcycles in Coventry from 1921 to 1933. Rex Acme had an excellent reputation pre-war for their racing machines.
Post war it was ridden by the late “Titch” Allen who used it in a number of events and sprints. This included achieving a standing quarter in 18.01 seconds in 1972.
