W. King and Co (of Cambridge)
King were motorcycles produced from 1901 to 1905 in Cambridge.
- 1901 The firm initially produced tricycles but soon moved to motorcycles.
- 1903 They built a model that was a typical primitive. It had a 2¾ hp MMC engine mounted vertically, driving the rear wheel by belt. They also offered the option of 3½ hp or 4hp water-cooled engines.
- 1904 The engines for that year were 2¾ hp to 3½ hp from either DAW or MMC. Direct-belt drive or two speed and chain were available, and a forecar was listed.
- 1905 The company was short lived and nothing further was heard of it after that year.
