Holroyd were motorcycles produced from 1922 to 1924 by John Spear Holroyd.
Holroyd had been a successful competition rider before World War I. He was, for a time, associated with the Motosacoche marque and also rode Blackburne, Massey-Arran and Edmund machines and opened a retail motorcycle business in the London area.
1922 By now, Holroyd had becom a manufacturer in his own right and offered sporting-styled machines, powered by 248cc and 346cc JAP engines. Racing models also appeared and some were moderately successful at Brooklands.
1924 Only a 346cc sv JAP model was listed. It had a three-speed Burman gearbox, all-chain drive, internal expanding brakes and a leather toolbox mounted above the fuel tank. Although this machine was an ideal sporting middleweight, sales were limited as Holroyd did not have the necessary networking to achieve national success.
