Oakleigh were motorcycles produced fom 1910 to 1914.
1910 The first machines had a 3¾ hp single or 5hp V-twin Peugeot engine, direct-belt drive and a spring frame with sprung forks.
1911 The specification changed, to use a 4½ hp JAP engine in a rigid frame, or V-twins of the same make of 6hp, 7hp or 8hp.
1914 Only a 3½ hp JAP single was available. The make then became one of the many casualties of World War I.
