Fee was a motorcycle produced in 1905 by Joseph Barter of Bristol.
Joseph Barter had first produced a single-cylinder machine prior to this. He offered it under his own name until, in 1905, he turned to a flat-twin engine. Later it was known as the Fairy and was the fore-runner of the Douglas.
The Fee engine was 2.5hp and mounted high in the frame of a stock with braced forks. It had a large flywheel on the left and the transmission was by chain to a countershaft. This carried a clutch and then went by belt to the rear wheel.
Within a year the name had been anglicized to Fairy.
