NYE were motorcycles produced from 1910 to 1912 by R. G. Nye and Co of Leather Lane, London.
1910 The company, who had been agents for several makes, exhibited machines under their own name at the Olympia show. These were touring, TT and Colonial models with a 3½hp Precision engine, Bosch magneto, Druid forks, belt drive and the option of a two-speed rear hub. There was also a 2½hp lightweight.
1912 Only a single machine was listed. This had a 4hp JAP engine, two-speed Albion gearbox and belt drive. The firm then reverted to acting as agents. Their name was linked to the Stuart two-stroke, tandem twin model and also to PV, but after that year, the name of NYE left the lists.

69 Leather Lane, Holborn, S.C. Stand No. 43.
Nye and Co. enter the motor arena, with machines of their own for the
first time. They are called the N. and C., and are of two separate
patterns, the tourist and lightweight. The former has 3 H.P. precision
engine and low back frame; the Tourist Trophy edition of it has
specially shaped cams for competition work; another variety has the
motor set specially high for Colonial use. The lightweight has a 2.5
H.P. Precision motor, the firm being agents for these engines, which
they also show separately. Bosch magnetos and Druid forks are fitted to
all the N. and C's, and the lubrication pump is arranged conveniently
near to the saddle. The machines are sold complete, with all usual
accessories and spares. Nye and Co. are open to appoint agents.
