"In the late 1940's the Turner Manufacturing Company Limited, of Wolverhampton, England formed a separate company called 'Light Delivery Vehicles Ltd', (L.D.V.) which operated from Turnerís Lever Street factory.

L.D.V. produced the two wheeled 'By-Van', and the three wheeled 'Tri-Van', and the rarest the 'Rixi'.

The 'Rixi' was a Rickshaw taxi or Tuk Tuk capable of carrying two passengers and the driver.
The three models were powered by a Turner 168 c.c. single-cylinder two stroke engine, mounted above the front wheel, which developed 3.5 b.h.p. at 2,500 r.p.m."
