A Brief History of the Marque

Made in England 1911-1924
Once a large factory in West Orchard, Coventry but not well-known in the UK as most of its production went to the Colonies, Hazlewood was first established in 1876 as a bicycle manufacturer. Their first machines were JAP-powered with a belt drive to the three-speed Armstrong hub. In 1913 they offered 3.5 and 5hp JAP twins and were beginning to use chain drive. Their last 678cc V-twin JAPs were produced in 1924.
