British Motorcycles

J. F. Bentley

Bentley were motorcycles produced from 1904 to 1905.

The firm of J. F. Bentley was based in New Bridge Street, London. It was not connected with the Bentley make of motorcar.

Late in 1904, a forecar, constructed as a tradesman's sample, was displayed at the Stanley show. It was powered by a 3½ hp Fafnir engine but proved to be far too flimsy for the cobblestones and rough terrain of that era.
