J. Caffyn and Son

Orlestone were motorcycles produced by J. Caffyn and Son, of Ham Street village in Kent, circa 1902.

The family had many interests and were bakers, merchants and agents as well as makers of cycles and motorcycles. Those machines made were basic primitives, with the engine hung vertically in the frame ahead of the pedals, a transverse fuel tank and braced forks.

The motorcycles were made in limited numbers.
