British Motorcycles

Lawson 1900-1901

Lawson were motorcycles produced from 1900 to 1901, and built by the Crypto works.

A couple of machines were made. One was similar to the Pennington, which had appeared a few years earlier, just before the turn of the century. This had the engine hung out behind the rear wheel, which was driven by belt.

In 1901, another machine was shown. This had its engine on one side of the front fork and the flywheel on the other, but was not successful.
