New Era Motor Co

New Era was a motorcycle produced between 1908 and 1911, by the New Era Motor Co of Lonsdale Road, West Kilburn, London.

  • 1908 Late in the year the company launched their Phenomobile tricar, which was a strange looking contraption that bore a strong resemblance to an invalid cariage. It was fitted with a 7hp V-twin engine over the front wheel, which it drove by chain. The handlebars stretched back to the driver, who sat beside the passenger. The seat, fitted out as a car body, went between the rear wheels with luggage space underneath.
  • 1911 Another model, called the Cyclonette appeared late that year. It was fitted with a vertical-twin engine and the exhaust-valve caps had extended radiators attached to them.

There was also a New Era built in Liverpool in the early 1920s, and the brand appeared in the United States in 1912 as the New Era Auto Cycle Co .
