Swallow

Swallow were motorcycles produced from 1903 to 1905, by a Mr Hodge, at his garage in Park Lane, Tottenham, London. The name appeared on cars as well as motorcycles.

His machines used Chater-Lea frames fitted with Minerva and Fafnir engines, and a two-speed gear where required. A forecar model was also offered; this too with the Fafnir engine.

It is thought that normal garage business brought this venture to an end.

The marque is unrelated to Swallow Coachbuilding.
