Dart Motorcycles by F. E. Barker

Dart was a motorcycle produced in 1901 by F. E. Barker of Dern Gate, Northampton.

As it was built only that year, few of these machines would have been made and it would have been typical of the era in style. This basic motorcycle was fitted with a 1½ hp Minerva or 2½ hp MMC engine mounted inclined above the downtube. It had standard bicycle forks and the rear wheel was belt driven.

The Minerva-powered Dart was very similar to the Brown of the same year.

N.B. There was also a Dart built in Coventry, 1923/24. Dart Engineering
