B & B Speciality Co

B & B Speciality Co were established in Ohio (USA) 1946. Their first 3-wheeler was the Brogan that took its name from its designer and builder Frank Brogan whose first product was a beer pump. The Brogan evolved from a motor scooter and so is a small two-seater car with a 5ft wheel base and was less than 4ft high to the top of the windscreen. Powered by a 10hp engine the vehicle can reach 45 - 50mph at 65 - 70 mpg.  The vehicle was modified over the years and came in many different forms that included passenger car with a hard top and a light delivery truck with an open back that had a load carrying capacity of 500 pounds.

Along with the Brogan a Broganette was also manufactured that was classed as a motor-scooter. It had handle bar steering and was powered by a 3hp engine producing speeds of around 35 - 40mph at 85 mpg.  By 1951 the Broganette had completely changed and was now more car like with 2 wheels at the front and a 10 ft long body.  The engine was also up rated to a 10hp Onan engine. Production ceased in 1952.
