British

Globe

Globe were motorcycles produced from 1901 to 1905.

Their basic machines were primitive but in 1904 the firm also offered a model with the Trimo forecar or a trailer. Although such fittings were nearing the end of their popularity, the company went ahead. The forecar had a 3½ hp Minerva or Sarolea engine with a water-cooled cylinder head inclined and hung from the downtube. A chain-driven pump circulated the water. A clutch was fitted to the crankshaft and the rear-wheel drive was by belt.


Report from the Stanley Show 1902

Clarke, Cluley and Co, Coventry, show the Globe motor-bicycle, with a trailer attached. The engine of 2.25 h.p. is placed vertically in a loop frame: it has a spray carburetter, large tank, and battery and coil case, two brakes, and generally is on accepted lines. The framework of the trailing car is of ample strength.
