Sprite were motorcycles produced from 1964 to 1974 by Frank Hipkin of Hipkin and Evans, Sprite Motor Cycles, Oldbury, Birmingham, and later by Sprite Developments, Halesowen, Worcester (1965-1971).
1965 Leading-link forks were used, with others remaining as an option.
They used the 247cc Starmaker engine, and when the Villiers supply dried up, they offered their own engine for scrambles.
1969 This was joined by a trials model with a 125cc Sachs engine.
1970s The firm ran on into the new decade, but when their US importers, American Eagle, collapsed owing them a considerable amount of money, Sprite motorcycles came to an end in 1974 - although the firm itself recovered.
In 1972-1974 they also built machines for BVM of Belgium using Husqvarna 405cc engines.
Note: The company continued later to make forks and wheel hubs until at least 1978.
