Noble Motor Co

Noble were motorcycles produced from 1901 to 1909, in works located in Blackfriars, London.

  • 1901 Noble were one of the pioneering firms to locate their engine in a central position, using power by De Dion, Minerva or MMC.

    1903 The company was now producing its own engine which hung from the downtube, similar to the Minerva. It had a mechanical inlet-valve, belt drive and braced forks. The inlet and exhaust valves were opened by a single cam.

    1904 The engine was now rated at 2¾ hp, located vertically in the frame and had conventiional twin-cam side valves. A racing version was available with a 4½ hp engine that could be adapted to 3½ hp for touring. The earlier model remained on the list.

    1905-1909 The range continued for those few years and the company used both their own and Peugeot engines.

    1912 A 3 1/2 hp Precision single-speed model appeared in The Motor Cycle in the first half of 1912. It had a rim brake on the rear wheel.
