Gaby

Gaby produced motorcycles between 1914 and 1920, supplied from County Buildings, Corporation Street, Birmingham.

World War I had already broken out when Gaby announced the production of a single model that would have been assembled elsewhere. Perhaps the company sincerely believed that the War would be over by the end of the year, so they produced a very basic machine that was powered by a 269cc Metro two-stroke engine that drove a Roc two-speed gear by chain, and the rear wheel by belt.

Post War, in 1920, the Gaby was again listed. It had a 269cc Arden engine, two-speed Albion gearbox and chain-cum-belt drive from John Burns and Co, of Holloway Road, London. Nothing further came of it.
