Barnson Motorcycles

Barnson was a motorcycle built in 1923.

Less than a dozen of these machines were built by A. C. Barnes in his Barnes Garage workshop in Wokingham, Berkshire. Typical of the era, the machine had a lightweight Villiers engine and either direct-belt or chain drive. Specifications would have varied as these top quality motorcycles were constructed to customer specification and according to the availability of components.
