Alldays & Onions Motorcycles


Alldays & Onions built motorcycles in Sparkbrook, England from 1903 to 1915. Models included the Villiers-powered Alldays Matchless (no relation). After 1915 they moved to a new factory in Small Heath and marketed under the Allon brand up until 1927. Allon models included a 539cc JAP V-Twin model.

The Alldays name dates back to the 17th century, and the firm merged with JC Onions in 1885 to build all manner of machinery including numerous bicycles and tricycles, and branched into automobiles in the early 1900s. During WWI they built mostly motorcycles, returning to cars on cessation of hostilities. The company changed its name to Alldays Peacock which was acquired by the Spire Group in the 1980s.
