Panther motorcycles were built in Yorkshire, England, by Phelon & Moore starting in 1900. They were well known for several advancements including the first use of the engine as a stressed frame member. Due to the tilted angle of the cylinder, the engines were nicknamed “slopers,” and the large capacity models – known as “Big Cats” – were always closely associated with the use of a sidecar. So much so that by the development of the M120, a purpose-built sidecar chassis was available with three-point mounting for better alignment, swing-arm suspension with Armstrong shock absorbers and its own separate brake. Panther motorcycles were built until 1966 when, during the decline of the British motorcycle era, the company closed its doors forever.
This M120 represents the last development of the Panther bikes. It is in correct, restored condition and proves easy to run. The matching Garrard Sidecars Ltd. Touring Saloon is beautiful in its fittings and appointments. Designed as a family transport, the sidecar is completely enclosed with a roll-back sunshine roof. This stunning example would complement any collection and is sure to delight with its beauty and obscurity.
