British Motorcycles


1. Jones was a motorcycle produced in 1904.

This was a primitive model powered by a Coronet engine that had been vertically mounted in a diamond frame. Basic in specification, it had belt drive and braced forks.


2. Jones was a motorcycle produced in 1936 by G. H. Jones, in conjunction with Villiers, as a prototype autocycle.

The engine used was a 98cc, but it differed from other machines in that the pedal shaft ran through the clutch shaft. Although neat in design, this would have given trouble if it was bent as the result of a fall. The engine went on to become the Villiers Junior.
