British Motorcycles


Samson were motorcycles produced by Reg Samson from 1910 to 1913.

This gentleman was fond of publicitity and the mark RS227 was emblazoned on his own machine. He built motorcycles fitted with a 3.5hp Precision engine that went into a frame of his own design, which also had Druid forks and belt drive.

That same design continued for 1912, and in 1913 he offered an Albion two-speed gearbox and retained the belt drive.
