Empire

Empire was a motorcycle produced in 1912, in London, by a foundry firm.

They built an experimental 1hp engine with a slide valve that was moved by a slipper that ran in eccentric grooves cut in the overhung crankshaft. Although they intended to offer 2.25hp and 3.5hp machines, nothing came of the idea.
