Has anyone on here ever heard of a Goodwood Cultivator? A fellow collector from England says they have their origin in USA around 1928 and is looking for any info on them and would be interested in knowing if any exist over here. Here is a photo of one.

I was just looking at that over on the stak. Sure doesn't ring a bell here. I don't even recognize the engine as American. Can you get him to send more pictures of the other side and drive?

Wish I could help. Big zero here tho... I will say this, GoodWood must've had stock in Castrol.

Does your friend have any info on what city they were built in? If so, many chamber of commerce office or historical societies keep info

1939 Suppliers to the Aircraft Industry


Dashwood Engineering Ltd., 27 Grosvenor Place, London, S.W.1, supplies machined parts and components for aircraft. Among such parts are fork-ends and tubular struts, undercarriage details and other parts which call for precision in manufacture. Mechanically pressed parts in high-tensile steel, electric and atomic welding, sheet metal work and so forth are other specialities of the company. May have geared up for war production, WW-2 ? Shawn

I was thinking it resembled a Colwood but I've never heard of any connection between them and an American mfg. I have a Colwood model A. My Colwood uses a JAP engine that is a knock-off of a Lauson TLC. That style Lauson was used in the late 30s here in the states. There weren't many one wheelers here in the 20s. It wil be interesting to see what we can turn up.
