Clark Masts Ltd, based on the Isle of Wight, used the small-wheeled CWS Commuter bicycle to mount their own 49cc two-stroke engine to the left of the pressed-steel rear wheel. They marketed it as the Clark Scamp.

Transmission was provided by clutch and direct gearing, and a flywheel provided direct lighting. The brakes were drum to the front and caliper to the rear. Clark had previously been in discussion with a Mr Coco about the use of his engine design, which apparently they used. Later he sued them, and won, over the use of his ideas in the Clark engine. As a result it was only in production for one year, and an estimated 400 were built.
