British Motorcycles


Baines were motorcycles produced from 1901 to 1902.

Built in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, the Baines was an advanced machine for its time. It had a De Dion engine located vertically in a bicycle-type frame with braced forks. Two versions were offered - one had a clutch and direct chain-drive, the other had a belt drive and pulleys to a reduction gear at the rear wheel. Neither model had pedals.
