I guess a little hint is required. The model was first intorduced in 1915 and were discontinued in 1924.

Its biggest "claim to fame" was that it was the finest light-weight motorcycle produced in its time.

Here is another example.

Hi Andy,
I think it's the Cleveland 2 stroke, which was a copy of the 225 cc Triumph Junior model, but I can't find any picture of either of them to be sure.

Thanks Aris...

Your correct it is a Cleveland!

Regarding it being a copy of the Triumph, here is the only picture I can find of a Triumph Junior:
