Coventry B&D Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Coventry B and D motorcycles were produced from 1923 to 1925 by Barbury and Downes of Coventry Bicycles

Although the marque was short lived, the partners produced a wide range of capacity classes. They also produced some models sold under the name styles of others, including the little 179cc two-stroke Wee MacGregor. Their own models were mainly four-strokes powered by JAP engines ranging from 346cc to 976cc. For a while the 348cc Barr and Stroud sleeve-valve engine was sold under the Coventry B and S brand name.
