Hi Don & John,
I own a Victoria Vicky FM38 which I beleive John you said was similar to the Pixie. I was wondering if you could send me a copy of the Pixie manuals as well John. Don, if you have any pictures I would like to see it and also send you pics of mine own bikes. I also own a Fuchs which is similar as well to the Victoria.

The Pixie is the only Canadian cyclemotor that I know of. It was made in Montreal by Godscroft Industries,Endor Motor Division in the late 40~s early 50~s. Your serial number should contain two digits for the year. It is a copy of a German motor made by the Victoria company. It is a 38cc loop scavanged,rotary valve 2 stroke with a two speed gearbox. The clutch lever was used for changing gears. Throttle was a twistgrip. Drive was by chain to a sprocket clamped to the rear hub. I have copies of the manuals if you are interested. I would like to hear more about your Pixie as they are not very common. I don~t know about value.
