Hurley-Pugh Motorcycles

The Machines

The list of machines that came out of the Hurley-Pugh works at Scunthorpe is truly awesome. Unfortunately, the specifications to many of them were lost in the great bombing fiasco. Of those that survived, some have just disappeared, never to be seen again.

This list has been painstakingly re-created by our dedicated band of researchers, although in many cases nothing is known beyond the name. However we have been fortunate to find out something about some of the bikes listed below. If you have any further information on any of the motor-cycles listed below, or indeed if you suspect that you know of a machine not listed, please contact The Professor at the Hurley-Pugh Owners & Enthusiasts Club - we'd love to hear from you. We are also looking for photographs or even original design drawings of these motor-cycles. Please get in contact if you even think that you may have one.
