"In the many publications concerning the history of Exeter U.K. there is no mention of the city's motorcycle industry. Arthur John Wheaton, or Jack Wheaton, began assembling motorcycles during the summer of 1926 in a maintenace workshop of the family printing works in Friernhay Street, off Fore Street, Exeter. The first two AJW's utilised a 496cc single cylinder engine from the Swiss MAG company and a 996cc Vee-twin powered by a British Anzani engine."
