Leonard were motorcycles produced by J. J. Leonard at his works in Long Acre, London, from 1903 to 1904.
1903 The machines used Minerva, MMC or Fafnir engines, fitted into a conventional loop frame. They had braced forks and belt drive.
1904 The engine became the 3½ hp MMC, but a 2¾ hp was also listed. That year the make changed its name to L and C, the initials of Lurquin and Coudert, with whom they had a relationship.
The models offered were typically primitive and had 2¾ hp and 3½ hp
Dion and Antoine engines, braced forks and belt drive.
The Leonard marque was short-lived, but the L and C brand re-appeared on the Continental Motor Co. stand at the 1907 Stanley Show.
