HEC Motorcycles

Hewins Engineering Company

  • HEC were motorcycles produced from 1923 to 1924
  • 1923 A machine was built that was similar to many others of that era. It had a 247cc two-stroke Villiers engine, chain drive to a two-speed counter-shaft gearbox and then by belt to the rear wheel.
  • 1924 A three-speed Sturmey-Archer gearbox was standardized, but the belt remained. A special competition model with all-chain drive, internal expanding brakes and a 54mph/86kmh speed potential could be obtained. Production stopped that year.


Note: It has been reported that Levis merged with Hewins around 1940, but this is an error. Levis merged with Hanstock, who were also known as H.E.C.
