Rockson motorcycles were produced in Cradley Heath, Staffordshire, from 1920 to 1923, by a well-established iron and steel firm.

  • 1920 The make first appeared, having been built by the company owners who enjoyed riding their own machines in competitions. Their choice of engine was the Villiers 269cc and a variety of transmissions was offered.
  • 1922 They added 348cc and 499cc Blackburne sv engines with three-speed Burman gearboxes.
