1930 Villiers 196cc Super Sports

196 c.c. Super Sports Engine. (1929-1937) This engine has the same bore and stroke as model II E.  but is a faster engine capable of a maximum speed of approximately 52 m.p.h., and of maintaining a high average speed for long distances. To attain this performance the cooling must be very efficient, therefore a special alloy piston and detachable cylinder head are employed. The 196cc engines were introduced in 1928, namely the 1E (1928-38) 2E (1930-40), and SuperSport (1925-34 or 1929-1940). A ” Super Sports ” edition of the 196-c.c. engine was introduced in 1929.

The core engine was acquired in the UK. The parts needed to make it a complete engine came from Australia, Canada, France, the UK, and the USA. Other miscellaneous parts were sourced in countries not mentioned above.
