Windrush

Windrush were motorcycles produced circa 1910, by Henry Preece, a cycle maker of Coventry.

This was a special order, so only about a dozen machines were constructed. They were fitted with a 500cc JAP engine and most of the rest of the machine would have been to customer specification. Belt drive and a three-speed Sturmey-Archer rear hub were usual.

One advanced feature was that the fuel tank covered the frame top-tube - not a style used many other firms, although the result was not a true saddle tank.
