Brian Webster’s B.M.B. President tractor and Corgi scooter. The 10 hp President (with a 4-cylinder Morris 8 side-valve engine) was the largest model in the B.M.B. line, manufactured by Brockhouse Engineering, Southport, England, from 1950 to 1956. The late 1940s Corgi, also built by Brockhouse, is the civilian version of the World War II-era Welbike. The Welbike’s components were designed to fit in an 18-inch tube that was dropped by parachute to support airborne troops.
