Eadie Manufacturing Co

Eadie was a motorcycle produced from 1898 to 1900.

Albert Eadie first formed the Enfield name in 1893, to produce sewing needles, bicycles and rifle parts.

In 1898 Albert Eadie adapted a quadricycle design by Royal Enfield to create a motorised tricycle powered by a 2.25hp De Dion engine. Also used Minerva and MMC engines. It proved to be popular but then slipped from sight as Royal Enfield progressed.

In 1907 BSA took over the Eadie assets and Redditch factory, but not Royal Enfield. Albert Eadie subsequently became the Managing Director of BSA.
