On May 19, 1919, Briggs & Stratton acquired all patents and manufacturing right to the Motor Wheel invented by Arthur Wall of Birmingham, England nine years earlier. From 1919 to 1924, Briggs & Stratton built the Model J (popularly referred to as the "Flyer"), a four-wheeled motorized buckboard powered by the Motor Wheel. The Flyer, which cost $175, was popular with merchants for small deliveries. One interesting fact about the Briggs & Stratton vehicle was that it had no brakes other than the feet of the driver.
