A Brief History of the Marque
The first Diamond motorcycles were built
in 1908 by D. F. & M. Engineering Company, initially powered by Belgian FN single cylinder and V-twin engines,
Their first J.A.P. machine appeared in 1912, and by 1915 they had moved to a new factory in Wolverhampton.

My father used to describe riding on his 98cc Diamond motor cycle from Wolverhampton, where he worked to Cornwall, where he courted my mother. It had a segmented leather belt drive, no clutch, no gears and was bump staryed, taking advantage of a decompression control. Gas generator in headlamp with rubber pipe to rear light. Can anyone identify the model and its age. A picture would be wonderful.
Thank you for any help available.
Diamond were producing belt-drive machines as late as 1925, but all those recorded here are much larger than 98cc.
