W. R. Heighton
W. R. Heighton of Elton, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, produced
motorcycles in the early years of the twentieth century.
Arion were motorcycles produced in 1903.
The design was very primitive and so the machine was short-lived.
Heighton was a motorcycle produced from 1904 to 1905.
This machine was a forecar powered by a 4hp Rex
water-cooled engine driving a two-speed gear.
It was also sold as the Vinco.
Vinco motorcycles were produced from 1903 to 1905.
1903 A 211cc 2.75 Minerva engine was hung from the down-tube. One machine was used in an 'End-to-End' attempt, but retired.
1904 A 3½ hp model was added, plus a forecar powered by a 4hp Rex. It was also sold as a Heighton.
