Argyle Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Argyll were motorcycles produced circa 1913 who produced a limited number of machines at an address in Stoke, Coventry, and were an early used of JAP engines. Typical of the era, they had Druid-style forks, upright engine installation and belt drive. 

A second sources states:
Argyle were motorcycles built before World War I.

The company was located in Argyle Street, Birkenhead. They built a few very basic and primitive machines. They were probably dealers who based their machines on heavy-duty cycle frames with the engine hung from it, with belt drive to the rear wheel.
