British Motorcycles

John L. Thomas

Celeripede were motorcycles produced from 1902 to 1903. They were made by John L. Thomas of Barnet, Hertfordshire.

The machines first appeared at the late-1902 Stanley show and there was a choice of engine - either 2hp Minerva or a 1½hp Celeri-mobile. Also shown was a motor-tandem with a 1½hp Minerva engine and belt drive. Any of those models could be fitted with the firm's sprung front-fork - available from other makers under the Celripede name.
