The Auto Glider was part of the post WW1 scooter boom in England. Their initial offering in 1919 was a stand-up model (Model A) and despite their assurances that standing was a better way, they soon offered the sit down Model D Deluxe shown below. In both variations, no starter was provided, the rider paddled the vehicle along manipulating a decompressor lever in order to start it.
Aside from the awkward engine and drive arrangement on the front wheel, the Model D styling was a big improvement. Despite that, the company was out of business by 1921.
