Rex Acme 348cc Blackburne

1926, ERA Shed, On long term display

Rex Acme produced motorcycles in Coventry from 1921 to 1933.

Rex Acme had an excellent reputation pre-war for their racing machines and in 1925 won the Isle of Man Junior TT.

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 its self as a giant killer!

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.
