Approximately 300 'EA Sports' and 'Super Sports' were manufactured from 1929 to 1931. This model was also refereed to as the 'Ulster' (so named after the Ulster TT races).
The Sports 65 (or 'EB' Sports 65) started production in June 1933. They featured aluminium bodies, about 400 were manufactured. The steel bodied 'AEB' model, known as the Nippy was produced in 1934 with a total production of over 800. The Sports 75 (also known as the 'EK' Sports 75) was also manufactured in 1934 followed by the 'AEK' or Speedy, produced from August 1934 to August 1935.
