Massey-Arran were motorcycles produced from a variety of premises in Birmingham, between 1920 and 1924.
1921 A 677cc sv V-twin JAP model appeared. This had a saddle-style toolbox in place of the usual rear carrier.
1924 During the year, attempts were made to restart the production of complete machines. This was from premises in Smethwick and as a re-organized company. The venture was not successful.
MASSEY-ARRAN at the Olympia Show
If the Massey-Arran had never achieved any other success it would go down in history as the machine on which J. Whalley put up such a lone fight against adversity and all the favourites in the 1921 Junior T.T. Incidentally, Whalley has now joined the staff of the makers, and will be in attendance at Olympia. Excellent detail work and finish characterise the Massey-Arran products, and for 1922 it is intended to concentrate on the lightweight single.
