Cyclecars were a class of small lightweight cars designed to fill the gap between motorcycles and the expensive regular automobiles of the first decade of the 20th century. They were usually powered by single or twin cylinder engines and were of lightweight construction. The Keeton Motor Company manufactured a cyclecar named the Car-Nation. Powered by a 135 cu 4 cylinder engine the 48" wide 1100 lb car would achieve 50 mph. About 2000 of these small cars were produced in two years of production. The company closed in 1914.
