Rex-Acme Motorcycles

Rex-JAP

Rex-JAP were motorcycles produced from 1912 to 1916, by the Rex firm of Coventry, and sold by the Premier Motor Co of Birmingham.

They produced a range of singles and V-twins using JAP engines in their existing frames. To begin with the machines had two-speeds and belt drive, but by 1914 there were only V-twin engines, but with three speeds and all-chain drive.

Thus they continued until 1916, but were not revived after the war.


  • Note: Post-WWI the firm amalgamated with Rex-Acme.
