W. H. Raven and Co

Ray were motorcycles produced from 1922 to 1926 by W. H. Raven and Co of Nottingham.

  • 1922 The firm was already well known for pedal cycles when they produced a novel 198cc sv miniature. It had its engine in-unit with a two-speed gear and clutch, chain final-drive and a flywheel magneto.
  • 1924 The specification now included a kickstarter.
  • 1925 A further miniature called the T. S. Sports was introduced. This still had in-unit construction - a 172cc Villiers-Jardine three-speed two-stroke unit. The 198cc machine became known as the Ray Super Lightweight.
  • 1926 The above model continued alone and kept its styling for that year, at the end of which production came to a close.
