Weatherell Motorcycles

Weatherell of Billericay.

  • Motorcycles produced between 1920 and 1923, by Reg Weatherell, of Kilburn, North London.
  • RW Scout were motorcycles produced between 1920 and 1921. The name came from the initials of Reg Weatherell of Billericay in Essex, who was a keen competition rider/agent.
  • 1920 These machines were assembled from components much as many others, but had an attractive line and performed well. They were fitted with the 318cc Dalm two-stroke engine with twin-port barrel, driving the rear wheel by direct belt, a further option was an Albion two-speed gearbox. The single speed was also listed as a stripped racing version.
  • 1921 Reg Weatherell entered the record books when he came sixth in the 350cc Class of the 500 Mile race, riding one of his own machines. This was a model fitted with a 269cc Villiers engine and two speeds. The marque then faded from the scene.
  • 1922 Having been involved with the RW Scout, Reg Weatherell turned his attentions to the production of this marque. The machines were Blackburne-powered, with 248cc or 348cc singles in sv or ohv form, plus a big sv 697cc V-twin. The twin had a duplex frame and a very low riding position, making it suitable for racing use - with an alternative engine in place.
  • 1923 Entries were made for the Island TT, when Weatherells finished twentieth and twenty-third in the Junior. The marque did not last beyond the year.
