British Motorcycles


Lily were motorcycles produced between 1914 and 1915, in Clay Cross, Derbyshire.

During the early 1900s, Richard Marshall set up building motorcycles using T. D. Cross engines and calling them Lily, after his mother.

This company offered a small range of models. One used the 269cc Villiers two-stroke engine, or a Peco of the same size, others used 2¾hp or 3½hp TDC sv engines. They all had a two-speed Albion gearbox and belt final-drive.

The onset of war was not a good time to start out, and the make only lasted for a few months.
