Over-Seas were motorcycles produced in Birmingham, between 1914 and 1916, to a design by W. J. Lloyd who was the original designer of the Quadrant.
1914 The firm was created to produce machines for abroad. There was never any intention for them to be available on the home market. They had a 3½ hp engine mounted in a strong frame and belt drive, with the option of a three-speed, Sturmey-Archer rear hub. Druid forks and pannier frames were all part of the equipment.
1915 There was the choice of the 3½ hp single or a 7hp V-twin engine.
1916 The same machines continued throughout the year, after which production ceased.
