Over-Seas

Over-Seas were motorcycles produced in Birmingham, between 1914 and 1916, to a design by W. J. Lloyd who was the original designer of the Quadrant.

  • 1914 The firm was created to produce machines for abroad. There was never any intention for them to be available on the home market. They had a 3.5hp engine mounted in a strong frame and belt drive, with the option of a three-speed, Sturmey-Archer rear hub. Druid forks and pannier frames were all part of the equipment.
  • 1915 There was the choice of the 3.5hp single or a 7hp V-twin engine.
  • 1916 The same machines continued throughout the year, after which production ceased.
