Rolfe were motorcycles produced between 1912 and 1913 in Smethwick.
1912 Late in the year a machine was built uing a 6hp V-twin Precision engine, Rolfe three-speed gearbox, chain drive and Saxon forks.
1913 The original model was then joined by a single fitted with a 3.5hp JAP engine, still with gearbox and all-chain drive. Their sidecar chassis had the wheel spindle supported on both sides, and it was constructed from straight tubing. The make was very short lived.
