sounds like a gravely...i might be spelling that incorrectly,,,probably am. i see them for sale in local trade papers everyso offten.

the bradleys had a shapely hood most of the time. the frame was a fairly light tube frame with a 1/8 inch thick pressed motor/transmission mount.

the gravelys had a tube handlebars, but just about everything was cast. i'll try to find a few pictures later tonight.

The tires were pnumatic, The enginge and drivetrain( transmission) was bolted to the Tubular frome..I think the engine was 5 HP my brother used the motor for A minibike. Quite Stupid if you ask me! There is A power unit, Near by that has cultivators on it.
